We took our 8 month old little boy in a baby seat on the back of our bike for this ride. Lisa and the people at Around the basin Bike hire couldn't have done more to accommodate us. Made sure we were fully clued up...More
My wife and I hired mountain bikes from Outside Sports in Queenstown (an excellent place to hire from, quality bikes, great service and excellent prices} to do these trails.
Day one we rode out and back on the country side trial. Was quite nice and...More
We walked only a small section of the trail on the peninsula from the gardens to around 3km on. Lake and mountain views were glorious and it was nice and peaceful with plenty of places to sit. Walking was easy on a flat path. Nice...More
Must do even if you are not a cycling enthusiast. Fantastic views and what a fun experience. We did this tour via the Bike around the Basin Wineries tour. I am so glad we did the full day tour in order to soak up the...More
The Queenstown trail offers opportunities for everybody. Its a great asset for the Queenstown area. I biked the trail around Lake Wakatipu and also near Arrowtown. Plenty of places for great food and coffee in both areas. We especially enjoyed the golf club views and...More
Visited on Monday 7th May. We started off near Steamers Wharf and walked around to the Gardens on the other side, then back towards Queenstown Mall. The walking track was mainly flat so an easy walk while taking in the views at a leisurely pace....More

Hi Michael-4551, So glad to hear that you enjoyed your walk around the peninsula - we certainly love the views on that section of the trail!
Wrap up warm with a few layers and some gloves and you would be good to go - the trails are easy/intermediate grade and the snow only lands on the ground in QT in winter a couple of times - the scenery is particularly... More
Wrap up warm with a few layers and some gloves and you would be good to go - the trails are easy/intermediate grade and the snow only lands on the ground in QT in winter a couple of times - the scenery is particularly gorgeous when the snow is on the hills - it would be an exhilarating and fun adventure in my opinion - have done it many times myself!

Hello - the beauty about our trails is the majority are of easy grade. From Queenstown House you can easily ride the Lake Wakatipu Ride from Queenstown Gardens to Kelvin Peninsula, stopping at the Boatshed Cafe for coffee and a sticky bun, onto the Hilton for a glass of wine in the Pinot Pit and then to the sculpture trail which is located on Kelvin Peninsula - an easy 15kms one way - bike taxi can be called to take you back to the Hotel - if the vineyards are where you want to go a lovely ride is from Arrowtown to Gibbston Valley for lunch and then bike taxi back to town (its slightly uphill heading from Gibbston to Arrowtown and there is usually a headwind too) - EBikes may be the answer for you there are plenty available from bike hire stores in QT - hope this helps, enjoy your ride! Happy trails
