Mt go-charting
Great fun couple of hours go-charting around the Mt highly recommended.
One important note, check with the Mt or Cardrona Shop that the Mt is open especially if leaving from Queenstown.

Cardrona mountain carts
Mar 2021 • Couples
We spent 2 hours on the ski field riding the mountain carts, what a hoot, fun 2 hours of racing each other down the tracks. The carts are basically three wheeled drift bikes with feet pegs to help steer and left and right back breaks.

Fantastic fun!
Feb 2021
Visited as a group of 4 couples and everyone had an absolute blast! Unique experience in the most beautiful surroundings. Staff friendly and helpful, great selection of suitable equipment and carts themselves are amazing bits of kit. 2-hour session was plenty of time to get at least 8 runs done (lost count as laughing so much). Would do this every weekend if I could. Many thanks for an awesome time.

Lovely day

Had a good day thanks
tracks are really nice for all levels.
Didn't like the bottom section of the pub run but I understand that is farm land and not much you can do about that..
I would happily return again.

Star Gazing with Dan
Jan 2021 • Family
A must do in Wānaka. The dark sky on top of the mountain was amazing. The guide Dan was knowledgeable and entertaining. We learnt about the stars, got to see Mars and Matariki to name a few. Great to drive over the summer mountain we are so used to skiing on. highly recommended

Best place in NZ for mtb
Dec 2020
If your looking for some serious fun on your mtb, look no further. Cardrona is the best place to be on your bike in NZ. The trails are wicked and there is something for everyone. Smash some laps and watch your technique improve. All the staff are super helpful and the vibe and atomasphere is awesome. Equally as awesome in winter. Get up there and experience it.
