COVID-19 UPDATE: At Alert Level 1 the trail is open and trail services resume

COVID-19 UPDATE: At Alert Level 1 the trail is open and trail services such as shuttles, tour operators, bike hire, cafes and accommodation are able to operate. However, the remote Mavora Lakes section (Lake Wakatipu to Centre Hill) of this trail should be avoided due to its remoteness and lack of facilities. Challenging winter riding conditions are also possible.

The boat services from Queenstown to Walter Peak and Mt Nicholas stations are not yet operating (scheduled to restart July 4th at the earliest), and Walter Peak Station is also closed. This means that there are no services from Mossburn to Lake Wakatipu, via Mavora Lakes – a return ride of approximately 200km.

Please keep track of where you’ve been and who you’ve seen to help contact tracing if needed, and keep following the government’s hygiene guidelines. You can read the official Golden Rules for Alert Level 1 here.
