Ride with the Originals! We’ve been getting people onto the trails since 2014. From the
excitement of Queenstown to the majestic mountains and picturesque farmland of Southland, we know the Around The Mountains Cycle Trail like no one else.

Around the Mountains Cycle Tours are the original operators on the Around the Mountains Cycle Trail and the only team who’ve been there right from the beginning, when the trail was just a glimmer of an idea! We know the trail like the back of our hands.

Why choose us?
We make biking adventures easy!

Choose from 3, 4 or 5 days packages including bike hire, shuttle transport, accommodation and bag transfers.

We’ll pick you up from your accommodation in Queenstown and start you off with the best bikes for you and the trail. Choose from Specialized Mountain Bikes or upgrade to an eBike to make
those hills a bit easier.

Your cycling adventure starts with an unforgettable trip across Lake Wakatipu on the historic TSS Earnslaw steamship, then enter a different world as you ride around the show stopping valleys of the Eyre Mountains and Von Valley, and through secluded backcountry, passing through farmland, small towns, and national park, on this 180 km, 3 -5 day cycle trail.

All our packages include:

  • Bike Hire
  • Helmet
  • Pannier
  • TSS Earnslaw lake crossing
  • Sherpa Shuttle transport
  • Accommodation
  • Luggage Transfers


Our most popular option also includes an extra day riding the Lake2Lake trail that runs along the Waiau River in Fiordland, from Te Anau to Manapouri. Stay overnight in Te Anau and we’ll shuttle
you to the start / end of the Lake to Lake Trail, then continue your adventure on the Around the Mountains trail the next day.
