Alexandra 2048 1536 QTBT

Riding in Alexandra is the biggest secret of New Zealand’s South Island mtb trails.

On a very large privately owned sheep station – The Matangi Station, lives a friendly farmer who has turned his land into a bad ass mountain biking park! Our team at Queenstown Bike Taxis have joined forces with local guys from Altitude Adventures to provide a full day of guided riding on this mecca bike park. The trails are like none you have ever ridden before, unless you’ve been to the moon! With thyme on your tyres and a full day of riding, this day will leave you grinning from ear to ear.


Our van will pick you up from your Queenstown accommodation and drive you out through the Kawarau Gorge to Alexandra. Here we’ll meet up with our friendly guide and hit the trails. A couple shuttle support drop offs will save the bigger climbs. We stop in town for a tasty lunch then head straight back to the trails. After your legs are spent your driver will meet you at the pub for a much deserving drink! The drive back to Queenstown normally consists of everyone falling asleep in the van dreaming about the epic day they’ve had!

This place is where the term ‘single track’ was coined, everything from tight technical climbs, long flowing descents and plenty of rock features thrown in. – It’s a great day I tell ya!
