We offer a mountain biking adventure package in the Port Hills with the Christchurch Gondola – choices of riding an off-road mountain biking trail or on-road scenic cycle routes.

The 'Mountain Bike Experience' package includes a one-way ride up on the Christchurch Gondola and bike hire.

Enjoy the fantastic views of the Pacific Ocean looking down on the local beaches around to Lyttelton Harbour, which is situated in an extinct volcano.

At the Summit Complex you will have time for a coffee or meal before taking a short walk to the Summit Road where you will be met and fitted up to a 24-speed mountain bike ready for your cycle down.

Choices of an off-road mountain biking trail or an on-road scenic cycle route are available to suit your cycling ability and experience.

Cycling time is one to two hours from the Summit Road returning on road back to the gondola base, cycling distance being approximately 16 kilometres.
