ALPINE

SOUTH

6-12 DAYS

 

Alpine singletrack, heli-biking, gondola bike parks, Queenstown & Wanaka have it all.

Queenstown and Wanaka are the jewels of NZ and the worldwide home of adventure tourism, think AJ Hacket bungy!

 

Mountain biking has now grown into the most popular sport in the Southern Lakes, due to its amazing diverse selection of trails and surreal scenery.

 

JustMTB has operated in Queenstown for years so we have the local knowledge on rides, eats, coffee and people that make this region so rich and exciting to visit.

Its all about small groups and customer service for a true holiday of a lifetime. Your time is short so make the most of it.

The Good Stuff

  • Queenstown Lakes is the most beautiful riding area in the world!

  • One day ride epic single track, the next day a double black diamond bike park for DH laps. It's all here for JustMTB to share with you.

  • Spectacular views and alpine scenery, crystal clear rivers, and lakes

  • We tailor each day to suit your riding, then always finish with a rehydration experience at a historic pub or back at the JustMTB lodge.

  • Maybe choose a “ride with the pro” experience. We are mates with some of the worlds best who all choose Queenstown as their offseason home.

  • Did I mention scenery, just google Queenstown and get a flavour of what we will see from "behind bars".

  • There are always options for a custom trip, personal chefs, multiple heli-biking and celebrity rides. It's all possible, just chat with your travel curator at JustMTB

The Itinerary

ALPINE SOUTH

DAY 1 & 2

DAY 1A mix of great singletrack, big views, and flowing descents and for those keen a few shuttled runs. Ride iconic enduro trails, with a cold beer at a historic pub to finish. Ride 4 hours / 25km

 

Day 2  – A new addition, and with scenery that’ll make you feel like you’ve fallen into an Instagram filter, it’ll be a challenge to keep your eyes on the trail.  A day to pedal in central’s amazing river setting. Ride 3-4 hours / 25km

ALPINE SOUTH

DAY 3 & 4 

Day 3 – Heli biking! A guides favourite, we’ll take a helicopter ride to a deserted mountain top, soak up the moonlike scenery and fill up Instagram feeds before following the flowing mountain top trail all the way to the Historic Cardrona Pub for post ride hydration. Ride 4 hours / 25km

 

Day 4 – Another MTB mecca and smorgasbord of trails. Flow trails, technical backcountry riding & endless ribbons of singletrack. There's been little gold found here since the late 1800's rush, but we'll show you the endless supply of golden trails.   Ride 3-6 hours / 20-60km

ALPINE SOUTH

DAY 5 & 6

Day 5 – Shuttles galore – an optional bike park morning followed by enduro shuttles on one of the Southern Hemisphere’s best-known trails. Just try and hide your smile. Ride 4-6 hours / 25-35km

 

Day 6 – For those early birds, we'll have a sunrise ride before we pack up, share contact details and wave a teary goodbye at the airport. Ride 1-2 hours / 10km

I rode with JustMTB and had the best week of my life! We spend most of our time on the DH trails of skyline and also Coronet Peak then finished up each day with a cold beer at Atlas Beer Cafe while looking at the spectacle that is Queenstown.World class riding, company and beer. I couldn’t be happier!

Your Accomodation

  • When it comes to where we relax after our rides we love the secluded lodges that are hidden in Central Otago.

  • JustMTB prefers to stay in either Cardrona or Wanaka, nestled in the mountains or looking at the lake in a lodge or family home.

  • You'll have a twin share or single room (supplement), all towels and amenities and access to the wonderful area around us.

  • Each night we decide whether we head into the local bars and pubs or just chill with a cold one at our lodge. Heaven.

Your Guide(s)

  • JustMTB lead guide is the Rodfather Rod Beardsley. A legend in the NZ mountain biking scene for many years. If you have a large group you will likely be joined other regional guides to ensure safety, we have a great selection of guides / social secretaries! Often you will have a session with one of our World Cup racers back from their Euro campaign just to spice things up!
