    Walter Peak, Queenstown

A non-guided cycling option for experienced cyclists to explore stunning back country.

With this non-guided cycling option, you cruise across Lake Wakatipu on board the TSS Earnslaw and then explore the very scenic Back Road on your own bicycle (or independently hired). The countryside is stunning as you climb through a golden tussocked valley into the rainforest surrounding the Mavora Lakes – home to several Lord of the Rings locations.

We provide you with a map and a food/beverage voucher that can be redeemed on board the TSS Earnslaw.  Don’t miss the last cruise back though – there’s no accommodation at Walter Peak!

  • Includes cruise aboard vintage steamship TSS Earnslaw
  • Quiet back country road through mostly gently rolling terrain
  • Suitable for experienced cyclists only
  • Moderate fitness recommended   

Please note: The TSS Earnslaw will undergo annual maintenance mid May 2017 - late June 2017.  During this time departures do NOT operate.
