A fun and adventurous half day boat and bike tour which combines a scenic lake cruise on the pristine Lake Wanaka with a mountain bike tour skirting the lakeshore. This guided bike tour is unique to Wanaka Bike Guides and allows you to experience one of Wanaka’s more remote biking trails with the support of our experienced bike guides.
The tour starts with a 30-minute boat cruise. As we slip through the crystal clear lake water, you’ll pass Ruby, Mou Tapu and Mou Waho islands and be treated to an endless view of the snow-capped peaks of the Southern Alps.
The ride itself is on historic farmland and areas of early Wanaka settlement, on a purpose-built biking and walking trail. This is a truly extraordinary local experience.
