A wicked helicopter flight over The Remarkables to one of the highest heli bike drop-offs in the area, near the peak of Ben Cruachan (just under 2000m). The views are as breath-taking as the altitude! After the scenic helicopter flight (with the bikes!), the serenity, once the helicopter leaves us on the ridgeline, is hard to put into words.

An 18km backcountry mountain bike trip like no other, our trail has a great mixture of terrain. Starting on a rough and rocky, open ridgeline, then diving into a beautiful flowing section of fast alpine singletrack made by the original gold miners back in the 1860’s, the track finishes as a rough and fast 4wd road meandering down to the picturesque Gibston Valley (Valley of Wines). 1500m of vertical descent!
