Queenstown Trails

While our main base is in Arrowtown, departing from our Queenstown base at The Hilton Hotel is also a great option if you don’t have transport. Catch an Uber or Water taxi from downtown Queenstown across the lake to The Hilton hotel. There you will find the Better By Bike Queenstown base located in front of the Jetty..
