At A Glance Departures

This luxury cycling package incorporates 3 Great Rides of NZ - Queenstown Trail, Otago Central Rail Trail, and Alps to Ocean Trail, and a guided Hooker Valley walk in Aoraki/Mt Cook National Park. Explore South Island's ever-changing mountains, tunnels, river gorges, valleys, lakes, glaciers and more by bike and by foot. Stay at three 5 star luxury boutique accommodation. This is the ultimate combination of relaxation and adventure.

Your cycling journey starts with a full day supported ride on the Queenstown Trails. The cycling route includes riding along the shore of Lake Wakatipu, in the scenic country-side, around historic Arrowtown, along the beautiful Arrow and Kawarau Rivers to the Historic Kawarau Suspension Bridge - home of the world famous Bungy Jumping, and finish with a short ride through to Gibbston Valley and enjoy a relaxing wine tasting.

Then set off on a scenic and historic journey into the Central Otago heartland for 2 days. You'll cycle 4 to 5 hours per day on a vehicle free trail with an easy gradient. Traverse ever-changing mountainous, rugged landscapes, tunnels, viaducts, spectacular river gorges, old historic gold-mining villages and more.

After a luxury hilltop private villa retreat and take in the best vistas of Lake Wakatipu, The Remarkables in Queenstown, embark on a hiking adventure to Mount Cook National Park's Hooker Valley to wonder at dazzling iceberg lakes, sky-scraping peaks and spectacular glaciers.

Continue your cycling adventure and ride on the Alps 2 Ocean (A2O) Cycle Trail and fully immerse in New Zealand's symbolic colour and beauty - the high peaks and distinctive blue lakes. Spend another two nights on the edge of Aoraki Mt Cook National Park, taking in the stunning views of the turquoise blue waters of Lake Pukaki and the Southern Alps and Aoraki Mt Cook.

No Mackenzie Basin visit is complete without stargazing. So your finale will be in a private cellar observatory to explore one of the darkest skies in the world with a 6" refractor telescope while you are treated with refreshments and nibbles.

You'll be supported with a local experienced tour guide and support vehicle while you are on the trail.

You luggage will be transferred to your next accommodation. You only need to carry a daypack.

The trip starts and concludes in Queenstown.

Combining the best New Zealand cycling trails with luxury boutique accommodation, fine food and wine, this is the ultimate luxury cycling adventure in Queenstown.

  • FEATURES

    You'll travel on 3 Great Rides of NZ on this tour:

    The Queenstown Trail: Surrounded by sheer mountain ranges, this trail threads through the Wakatipu Basin. Linking Queenstown, Arrowtown and the Gibbston Valley, you will ride along a mix of lakeside paths, country lanes, quiet roads, vineyards and cross-country cycleways with countless sights to enjoy in between. Easy to moderate grade and good for a family ride.


    Otago Central Rail Trail: Named after the original railway line, completed in 1921, the Otago Central Rail Trail was once a busy rail route that looked after farmers, orchardists and gold miners. Today it is a multi-day cycle journey that is steeped in history. It's all off-road, no traffic, just Central Otago's big skies and distinctive landscape to enjoy.


    The Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail is New Zealand in all its colour and beauty – from the highest mountains, past great lakes and rivers and down to the ocean. It is truly one of New Zealand’s great rides and sure to be a memorable experience.

    WATER
    Extremely low rainfall along most of the Rail Trail means drinking water is not as freely available as in other parts of New Zealand.
 Be prepared by taking plenty of water with you when venturing out on to the Trail. If you do run short, many businesses stock and sell bottled drinking water.

    COMFORT
    To avoid getting saddle sore we recommend you do some regular biking before your tour. During the trip, you can help avoid soreness by easing up off the saddle each time you are going down hill. If you do get saddle sore try bland creams such as Vaseline, or commercial products such as Chafe Ease.

    The tour will allow time for toilet stops at frequent intervals when you stop for meals and snacks. There are also quite a few trailside toilets and you would be advised to carry a small supply of paper or tissues for use in these. WHAT TO BRING

    Smoking is not permitted on the bus, or in tents or in other accommodation being used by tour operator at the time that a trip is being conducted.

    Child Policy
    Please consult travel consultant on age limit.

    Changes to Itineraries
    Local conditions may necessitate changes to sightseeing, walking and driving routes, camping and accommodation locations. While every effort will be made to provide the services and experiences as offered in our brochure, on our website, and in our trip letters, we reserve the right to vary your itinerary. In the event that we are forced to change your arrangements, substitute arrangements of a similar standard will be provided. The tour operator will not be liable where interruptions to itineraries are caused by weather conditions, technical problems to transport used by the tour operator, industrial action, political or civil commotion or other circumstances beyond our control. We refer you to the conditions regarding travel insurance.

    Changes in Prices
    While we will do its utmost to honour its pricing unforeseen circumstances may mean that prices may be subject to change without notice.

    Pre-Existing Medical Conditions and Age Limits
    You need to advise Onlyluxe travel and the tour operator on any pre-existing medical condition, mobility impairment and/or disability that might reasonably be expected to increase the risk of your requiring medical attention, or that might affect the normal conduct of a trip and the enjoyment of other trip members. Onlyluxe Travel and the tour operator may require an assessment of your medical condition from a qualified medical practitioner. If you fail to adequately notify the tour operator of any pre-existing medical conditions and/or disability, the tour operator reserves the right, at its reasonable discretion, to cancel your participation in a trip at any time, including after the commencement of your trip, with no right of refund if your medical condition, mobility impairment and/or disability could be reasonably expected to affect the normal conduct of the trip and the enjoyment of other trip members.

    Cancellation by The Tour Operator
    The walks take place in very special wilderness settings. The tour operator is at the mercy of nature in all her beauty and all her fury. The tour operator will under no circumstance knowingly place at risk the health and well-being of our guests and guides. In the case of natural threats, acts of God and the like (e.g. bushfires, impassable snow, etc) the tour operator may need to cancel a walk with very little notice. In some cases, this can occur after the walk has commenced. The tour operator reserves the right to cancel any walk up to 60 days prior to departure if a minimum of 4 walkers are unable to meet for a tour. If the tour operator needs to cancel for any reason, the cost of the walk or any other costs associated with travel to the designated pick up point, overnight accommodation, meals, etc will not be covered by the Onlyluxe Travel and therefore we strongly recommend travel insurance be taken out prior to travel.

    Force Majeure
    'Force Majeure' means (without restriction) any event which Onlyluxe Travel or its third party providers could not, even with due care, foresee or avoid. Force Majeure covers events such as, but not limited to, adverse weather conditions, fire and all similar events beyond our control. In the case of Force Majeure Onlyluxe Travel will not accept liability, and reserves the right to change and cancel trips.

    Evacuations
    In rare circumstances, due to injury or unforeseen illness, the tour operator may need to evacuate you from a remote part of the walk. Helicopter evacuations are expensive and in most cases will be at a cost to the customer.

    For Australian residents, under the Australian Government Medicare Act, it is prohibited for any domestic travel insurance product to provide any financial reimbursement with regard to ambulance or air ambulance services. We therefore strongly advise our customers to take specific ambulance cover through their health insurance provider. Evacuation cost will not be covered by the Onlyluxe Travel and therefore it is also strongly recommended that our customers take out travel insurance to cover (amongst other things) the costs associated with evacuation.

    Travel Insurance
    In view of the heavy cancellation penalties applied to cancelled reservations in certain circumstances, we strongly recommends suitable travel insurance be purchased at the time the holding deposit is paid. We recommend insurance cover that covers any loss which may be suffered due to cancellation. We also strongly recommend comprehensive travel insurance against loss of baggage and medical expenses.
