What to Expect
The young and young-at-heart will both love this easy and family-friendly bike tour alongside the Hawea River, taking in some of Wanaka's most scenic beauty.
Your professional Wanaka bike guide takes the hassle out of organising a family bike tour, supplies all the equipment and has bikes & helmets to fit all adults and children. They also bring refreshments and look after transport to and from the trail.
Meandering alongside one of Wanaka’s well-known rivers, there’s plenty to see and do. This tour passes by a standing wave where you might see people kayaking or river surfing.
The crystal clear water also showcases the local trout population, and at the end, you'll cross a spectacular swing bridge that spans the river.
The trail is wide and well maintained, and you only cycle in one direction, which is mainly downhill with a gentle gradient. Whether you’re 7 or 70, this is a bike tour you can do.
