Glass House Adventure Day

35km Av. daily distance
Difficulty level

Our motto is Live, Laugh, Ride ... and, in this case, "paddle"! This day trip is all about getting into nature, stepping off the beaten track and having a good time. VéloRoo's guided bike and canoe tour takes the adventurer into the hidden landscapes surrounding the Glasshouse Mountains; showcasing natural features few will ever discover.

Tour Highlights

Come and join VéloRoo on a day of adventure. The Glasshouse Mountains area has so much more to offer than its iconic volcanic features.

Our unique Glasshouse adventure scenic bike, canoe and self drive tour takes you along bush trails, around secret river bends and all the way up to hidden Glasshouse Mountain lookouts. Stunning vistas of the Glasshouse Mountains and southern Sunshine Coast are waiting for you to discover them.

Immerse yourself and find your bliss in this peaceful environment as you pedal and paddle with your guide, experiencing a range of different terrains. Along the way, you will learn about the local history, regional produce, flora and fauna; and hopefully spot wallabies, kangaroos, banded finches, the vulnerable black glossy cockatoo…there are no limits to the surprises the local wildlife has in store.

  • Bike – Ride exotic pine forest trails, buzzing with the sounds of the wild
  • Canoe – Glide along tranquil waterways under the canopy of native forest
  • Walk – Let the views of the Glasshouse Mountains take your breath away

For the final part of this epic day out, an exclusive road map will lead you to viewing spots only a local would know. You’ll be back at your accommodation in time for sunset aperos – invigorated and full of stories to celebrate your day of adventure!

A word from our clients

Don’t take our word for it - discover why our cycling adventurists have fallen in love with the Occitanie Region of Southern France and the VeloRoo way.

I was luckily enough recently to have a few days in Noosa (glad to live on the QLD side of the boarder!). I have been there before and even taken my bike so I could explore the surrounding hinterland. However, this time I decided to take a guided tour with VeloRoo as I wanted someone who knew the area and the best bike friendly roads (rather than me trying to wing it and getting lost and not really getting the most of the time I had). I am so pleased I did. VeloRoo looked after me all the way; from our start at Noosa beach (blue sky, white sand, rolling waves – almost didn’t want to leave but glad we did) to our finish point back at my hotel. We were blessed by a magnificent warm winter morning (sorry southerners) and not much traffic getting out of Noosa and into the hills. The roads were smooth, the scenery sublime and Steve provided a running commentary of the history and interesting facts of the area we were riding through which made this more than just a ride in the hills. All the while the VeloRoo ‘support wagon’ followed us in case we needed anything. If you love to ride and are lucky enough to be in the Sunshine Coast area of Queensland, I recommend getting the Veloroo team to guide you. You could try and navigate your own way – I have done this before – however having someone know the best routes based on your riding ability and what is happening in the area was invaluable.Sept 2020
Having recently organized a Sunshine Coast Cycling tour with Steve at Veloroo, my husband and I were extremely impressed with how professionally run the tour was conducted and how reassuring it was to have Julia in the support vehicle. His local knowledge of the beautiful quiet country roads was second to none and being able to accommodate our different fitness levels was brilliant. Would have no hesitation in recommending Veloroo for your Cycling Tours. We will definitely be back.August 2020
