Alpine scenery and splendid shores
Embark on a riverside ride along the Hawea and Clutha Rivers, cycling through spectacular scenery towards Wanaka to enjoy a bike tour along some of the South Island's most mesmerizing outdoor trails. Start off from Lake Hawea along the breathtaking banks of the Hawea River towards Wanaka, stopping off at an award-winning patisserie in Albert Town.
Begin your day tour with a safety briefing and an overview of the route from your guide before you begin cycling along the tranquil riverside trail. Forests and verdant bushland form the backdrop to this bike tour, while the snow-capped Southern Alps dominate the horizon. As you cycle, admire the mirror-like effect of the mountain range's reflection in Lake Hawea's crystal-clear waters.
Follow the trail, stopping whenever you fancy for photographs, a rest, or simply to soak up the stunning scenery. Cycle steadily on until you reach Albert Town, a picturesque settlement at the confluence of the Wanaka and Clutha Rivers. We recommend a stop at the town's Pembroke Patisserie, renowned for its award-winning bakes. Sit on the riverbank of the Clutha with your coffee and cake, and savor the splendid alpine views over the distant mountains.
Hop back in the saddle for the final stretch of this family-friendly day tour along the Clutha River. You'll emerge at Lake Wanaka to be rewarded with pristine views towards the towering Mount Aspiring. Once you've finished the trail, the bikes remain yours for the rest of the day, so take the opportunity to venture a little further around the lake, or just cruise around town, stopping at the restaurants, cafes, and shops that form this bustling hub. For further exploration of the Otago Region’s sensational alpine scenery, take the Lake Dunstan E-Bike & Boat Tour from Cromwell.
