Airport transport with Bikes

Arriving in  Queenstown with a bike box you will need to hire a taxi van with ample luggage space, or if in a big group one with a luggage trailer.  All of the larger taxi companies will have these options and it is likely that some will already be waiting at the airport for arrivals. (Queenstown Taxis, Green cabs).


It is a stunning scenic drive through to this area from anywhere in the South Island.
