Queenstown is New Zealand's ultimate mountain biking and cycling destination.

Queenstown is a magnet for bikers. The quality and variety of the Queenstown bike offering, from cruisy lakeside trails to gnarly downhill tracks, means there’s a biking experience for everyone, whatever your age, ability or biking style.

Queenstown’s prestigious mountain bike scene, with three lift-assisted bike parks, world-famous trails, and one of the most legendary dirt jump parks on the planet, attracts keen bikers from around the world. A range of trails suited to all abilities ensures there is plenty of terrain for beginners and those keen to develop their skills too. Our biking culture is unique and much of the trail building in Queenstown is due to the legends at the Queenstown Mountain Bike Club and Queenstown Trails Trust, made up of passionate local volunteers.

For those looking for a gentler pace, there are plenty of stunning scenic cycling trails to explore. With an extensive trail network, Queenstown is the perfect base for your next biking adventure. From short scenic rides, to multi-day rides including access to six of New Zealand’s Great Rides spanning Queenstown, Central Otago and Southland, mountain biking in Otago is a great way to discover the region’s scenic landscapes.

The Queenstown Trail, managed by the Queenstown Trails Trust, offers over 130kms of trails beside Lake Whakatipu and our rivers, climbing to Arrowtown and winding through vineyards. Discover historic sites, suspension bridges and hidden gems, ride a small section or discover the whole trail at your leisure.

Biking is one of the best ways to experience Queenstown. Explore our stunning landscape and when you’re not in the saddle, you’re in the home of adventure, with food and wine to try and an après bike scene second to none.

Make Queenstown your next bike trip.
