- On request
The perfect half day, independent cycling trip experiencing the best that Queenstown has to offer. Enjoy a Spirit of Queenstown cruise to Mt Nicholas High Country Farm on the western shores of Lake Wakatipu on a modern, spacious, purpose-built catamaran. Cruise through Bob's Cove and view flora and fauna up close, and enjoy spectacular views towards Glenorchy, Mt Earnslaw, the Southern Alps and Remarkables mountain range. Disembark the vessel and join Mt Nicholas Farm Experience and journey between Mt Nicholas and Walter Peak Stations (high country farms) as you cycle along a quiet country road through open farm land at your own pace. There is a small climb as you leave the Mt Nicholas woolshed, then the remote, but public, shingle road levels out and continues over easy terrain alongside the lake.
Watch the landscape unfold and take in the panoramic alpine views while cycling 14 kilometres (about 1 hour 30 minutes) to Walter Peak before boarding the vintage steamship TSS Earnslaw for the return cruise to Queenstown. Complimentary tea and coffee is provided on Spirit of Queenstown to Mt Nicholas High Country Farm.
