Clutha River: A local favorite! Explore the trails both sides of the Clutha River. A combination of the scenery and terrain which makes this the perfect ride for all abilities. With our local and knowledgable guide, you will get to see and experience so much more that just riding including a cup of tea and some home baking while overlooking the Clutha river as well as finishing off with a delicious lunch at the historic Luggate Pub.
West Wanaka: The trail runs through an iconic farm station on the outskirts of Wanaka which offers isolated and pristine landscapes as well as breathtaking views of Mt Aspiring and the Lake Wanaka. This trip is as much about biking as it is about the scenery so there will be plenty of time to relax on one of the many remote beaches along the way and take in the views. Your ride includes around 2.5kms of single track and the rest is wide farm track. For the riders that want to get out and explore! Ride in the mountains that over look Lake Wanaka. A mixture of trails means there is something to be enjoyed by those of all abilities. And for the more experienced bikers, we have some single track that can take you even further into the wilderness!
