SMALL GROUPS, BOUTIQUE WINERIES & AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCES

Our Philosopy

EAT.DRINK.EXPLORE

Fork and Pedal live by this philosophy. EAT, DRINK, EXPLORE.

It is no secret that some of the best wine in the world is produced right here in this region. We are passionate about good food, beautiful scenery and even better wine. Imagine sipping on a glass of Central Otago Pinot Noir or a beautiful crafted beer from a local brewery as you bask in the stunning surrounds. Meet locals, pedal at your own pace and choose a route that suits you and the rest of your group. We are your best choice when wanting to add an activity to your Queenstown escape. Whether you opt for guided or self guided, you can sit back, pedal and relax as you explore this stunning region at your leisure.  

Sustainable Business Practices

Fork and Pedal Tours is passionate about the environment so has put the following things into practice to try and run the business in a sustainable way.

  • Providing reusable water bottle to customers instead of single use.  These are washed and sterilized after each use.
  • Our picnic lunches provided by Provisions cafe come in paper bags and food is wrapped in paper not plastic.  The paper is then recycled.
  • Customers fill out a digital waiver instead of paper forms.
  • Guides/drivers use apps to view their pick-ups for the day not paper print outs.
  • The Fork and Pedal office is about 90% paperless.  
  • Cycling is much better for the environment and for your health....win win.
  • We are Queenstown Trail Trust partner and our support helps them maintain and build new bike tracks.  Eventually linking our region and reducing the need for a car.

Fork and Pedal Tours have a big focus on the health and safety of our staff, customers and business practices.  We are audited by an external auditor OutdoorsidMark.  OutdoorsMark specialise in safety audits for the outdoor sector.  Our aim is provide high quality safe equipment and advice to our customers so they can have an enjoyable experience and return home safely at the end of the day.
