Mountain Biking in Queenstown Bike Park, Queenstown, Otago New Zealand

Built Tracks:
30 km/18 mi
Queenstown is considered by many sportsmen as the capital of extreme sports and adventure activities. It is situated in Otago region, in the South Island, New Zealand.

The town is surrounded by Lake Wakatipu and the awe-inspiring Southern Alps, with spectacular mountains such as the Remarkables, Cecil Peak and Ben Lomond. Queenstown and the surrounding area was the setting for the legendary films Lord of the Rings and X-Men Origins. Despite the mountainous landscape, the climate is considered to be oceanic, with warm summers and temperatures that can reach up to 30°C/86°F, and cold winters with frequent snowfalls.

For the lovers of free-ride mountain biking, Queenstown Bike Park is the perfect place to visit. Situated in the Ben Lomond Recreational Reserve, it offers 30 km/18 mi of built tracks and a long run of 6 km/3.5 mi.

There is a great variety of trails offered for the riders of all levels (grade 3: Vertigo and Original, grade 5: Armageddon and Thingymajig, and for the brave ones the grade 6 Grundy, Ants Track and Hobbit trails). Direct access to the park is available through Skyline Gondola. Mount your bike on the lift, rise 790 m/2591 ft above sea level and land on the free-riders’ paradise.

Note: Bike rental also available outside the park.
