Fantastic e-bike experience, with beautiful scenery, and great spots to swim. Some trail parts were hard to follow, when looking at all the sights. We had a varied group of fitness levels, and were all happy to get off our bikes at the end of the day!

As a young fit couple, we chose the standard bike (non-electric) and managed quite well. Definitely had to mentally prepare for the few hills but other than that was an easy track, we enjoyed the occasional incline challenge. We finished all up in just shy of three hours. The staff were knowledgeable and the track was easy to follow even for someone directionally challenged. We would definitely recommend this as a unique and enjoyable way to see the local land spaces.

Bloody awesome ride, I highly recommend. My partner and I did the Arrowtown to Queenstown ride on regular bikes (not electric). We are fit so found it enjoyable. There were a few challenging hills but they were over quickly. You definitely will need an electric bike if you don't ride long distance regularly. We did the ride in 4 hours and that included taking a side ride to the bungy. That adds on 10km to the overall ride. Take lunch or snacks as you will absolutely need the fuel. We had planned to eat at AJ Hackett bungy but the cafe was shut due to being short staffed, so go prepared. Beautiful scenery and nice gravel type tracks all of the way. Absolutely tired post ride, you will get a workout, but such a great day out. Tip: wear gloves (unless it's summer). Best thing we did otherwise our hands would have been freezing.
