Queenstown - 78 km
Our route today takes us up the Crown Range and over the Cardrona Road. We climb past the historic Cardrona Hotel to the summit where we are rewarded with amazing views of The Remarkables mountains and Queenstown. We descend the exhilarating hairpin bends to Arrowtown, with its quaint old cottages and avenues of elms. A short leisurely ride beneath Coronet Peak, a winter ski field, takes us to Arthur's Point where we cross the Shotover River on our way to Queenstown. Set on Lake Wakatipu and surrounded by mountain peaks, Queenstown is a pretty, buzzy town perfect to relax in after a hard days cycle.
