Big Mountain e-bike tour

price from $350



Try E-Biking one of NZ’s highest bike tracks.

The feeling of climbing in such remote mountains with the assistance of the E-Bike is literally
indescribable.  As you gain altitude, the terrain and trail is constantly

This really is backcountry riding at its best!

This incredible backcountry ride is a seasonal activity operating from late Spring through Summer.

We have the option to ride on two different high country stations for the big mountain ebike tour.

On both stations you will be riding on  farm tracks that are mostly gravel and dirt with some corrugation due to weather (Rain) erosion,  this ride is suitable for intermediate riders and a reasonable level of fitness is required. The riding is hilly and be prepared to walk the odd section when you get tired, the paths we follow are used by farm vehicles and stock and are not technical. We will assess your riding ability early and advise any sections that we feel you would be best to walk. These rides are about getting high into the beautiful Wanaka mountains and not about hard charging single track, for those rides we suggest the bikes parks or talk to us about a mutli day ride like the old ghost road.

Throughout the day you will be with a guide, they will have your safety as a priority, they will also be able to point out the local flora and fauna and the multitude of famous landscapes in the region.

From the top of the rides you will have views for miles, from Breast hill views can be enjoyed of Lake Hawea, The Southern Alps, The Lindis and more and from the top of Lake McKay on the Pisa Range you will have fantastic views of Mt Aspiring, Wanaka, the Cardrona Valley and more.

The very best part is the top is only halfway!

Enjoy a long descent (on Grade 1-2 on Lake McKay Station and a very small section of Grade 3 on Lake Hawea Station trails) down through a picturesque high country station.

This is a biking adventure, with riding that is not overly technical. Bring a sense of adventure, a good fitness base and the desire to get to the top.

(Non Ebike options are available for the very fit)


Lake Hawea Station is a private high country station, that has a strong focus on conservation and biodiversity, it is a property that enjoys uninterrupted views of the picturesque Lake Hawea to the West and North and alpine, tussock and beech forest ranges to the East.  You will be crossing areas that are actively farmed. You may see cows and sheep grazing, you may well also see wild game like deer, rabbit, pig and goats.

The ride is up a well-maintained farm track (dual track) that is loose gravel and occasionally rutted, the climb at times is reasonably steep which is why we do it on e-bikes! Your guide will be ensuring that you are riding in a safe manner and within your capabilities.

The riding is on farm tracks mostly Grade 1-2 and small Grade 3 sections
