Up to 5 people
Includes transportation and equipment

What you'll do

Take a ride to the top of Grant Peak, 800 meters above sea level overlooking just about all of the Wakatipu Basin. (it may sound hard but remember you're on an eBike and it has a magic button 'TURBO' that flattens hills)

What makes this trail so magical is the spectacular scenery showcasing the very best of Queenstown's natural landscape.
This is an exclusive location, you'll only be able to get there with me.

Learn about the local European and Maori that the Wakatipu basin is steeped in. The gold, the Pounamu, farming and in recent times all played an integral part in what Queenstown looks like today,

360 views only 5 minutes from the airport.
Other things to note
This eTour is for the confident/intermediate bike rider, not for the novice rider.
Be smart, dress for suitable weather.

Kia ora, my name is Shay,
After years of Mountain biking, I first discovered eBikes on a trip to the US. An avid adventurer I was determined to get my own eBike and begin pushing it to the limits, keen to discover the full potential of this exciting emerging technology.
I started posting videos and images of my eBiking adventures online and my friends were blown away by the breath-taking footage.
With years of experience working in Queenstown’s tourism industry, extensive knowledge of local trails and an unsurpassed passion for eBiking, I love taking people off the beaten track and showing guests the real New Zealand.
“To see that look on someones face when they reach the top of a mountain is priceless"

Where you'll be

The Tour will start and finish in Frankton (The Barn/Buzz Stop 26 Hansen Road) 5 minutes from the airport. You'll be given an introduction to eBiking, a quick briefing of the trail and fitted with safety equipment. You'll pass Lake Johnson, Tuckers Beach and through a working farm to the start of the 749-meter climb. (remember you're on an eBike so climbing hills is easier than ever)

What a fantastic experience riding on an e -bike with Shay into the skies of Queenstown. My wife and I were new to e-bikes but we were able to adapt to them very quickly. The hills are steep and are daunting but the turbo switch enabled us to accomplished something real special. Shay is very professional and friendly and he made us all feel safe in tackling the task. We travel to have different experiences and Shay definitely provided a different and so rewarding experience. The view sat the top of the peak are remarkable and Shay provided a hot drink to enjoy our conquest. We highly recommend this experience.

Amazing!! What an epic way to see the views of Queenstown! Shay and his team are friendly, full of local knowledge and they have the gear that gets you to the top of the mountain. I throughly enjoyed my ride this morning. The bike quality is phenomenal! Weather was on point, views were incredible and that turbo button is something else! Definitely recommend! 10/10 ⭐️

I felt so comfortable from the start of the tour until the finish. Shay, you certainly made my holiday. Thank you for your kindness throughout the tour. Thank you also for those memorable pictures and videos you took. This is one holiday I will never forget. Much appreciated and I will definitely be recommending this tour to my friends. Thank you so much again for everything. Nuan

One of the better experiences I've had in New Zealand...and that is really saying something considering all of the beauty and options here!

Having never been on an E bike Shay made the experience very enjoyable with sufficient pre ride training in the car park, before the awesome ascent along the track and UP the mountain. Constantly, Shay was teaching and offering support along the ride regarding gear choice and power level. It was mostly “turbo” for me! The views along the way were spectacular. However, the view from the top over Queenstown and surrounds made the trip totally worthwhile. Shay’s talk about the history was really interesting too. The follow up videos and photos from Shay (free of charge) was an added bonus. I would highly recommend this trip if you’re in Queenstown. I’d do it again. Loved it.
