The Queenstown Trails are attracting visitors from all around the country - and from around the world!  This website is the first stop for information, advice and recommendations.  Our visitors are actively researching their rides and hiking preferences including the best places to eat, stay, hire or purchase gear, transport and entertainment. We also use this site as a 'go to' for news, alerts and trail updates.  

Cycle Tourists spend more on their visit ($3800) compared with the average international tourist ($2500) - TNZ cycle tourism market profile, 2013

To ensure that there is a consistently high level of customer service across New Zealand, businesses can apply to join the Official Partner Programme and be recognised as an Official Partner of the Queenstown Trail and Nga Haerenga – the New Zealand Cycle Trail.  To become an Official Partner your business must meet certain cycle-friendly standards as outlined by Nga Haerenga – The New Zealand Cycle Trail - download the Membership Form here. As an Official Partner, your business will be exposed to these visitors by your own dedicated page in the directory listing. This will ensure visitors can find and make contact with your business prior to their arrival to Queenstown, or when they're riding or hiking the Trails. 

Categories include:

  • Accommodation
  • Things to Do
  • Eating and drinking
  • Bike hire
