Cycle Touring in New Zealand

A Bike Tour of "Middle Earth"

8 day Road Cycling Tour on New Zealand’s South Island

480 km or 300 miles

Christchurch - Queenstown - Wanaka - Fox Glacier - Hokitika - Christchurch

Attention road bikers: You have the option to cycle up to 100 km+ (60 miles+) each day

Experience the scenic highlights of the South Island on a tour starting and finishing in Christchurch and taking you via Queenstown and the rugged West Coast. You can choose from rides between 60 km (40 miles) and 100 km+ (60 miles+) each day.

From Christchurch you drive to the foot of the Southern Alps, where the cycling starts gently. On quieter backroads, you continue through rolling farmland which gradually opens up into the expansive Mackenzie Basin where you can admire breathtaking views of snow-capped mountains and the golden tussock grasslands of the Lindis Pass area. Pass though historic goldmining towns before arriving in Queenstown, the outdoor Adventure Capital of New Zealand.

Cycle through the ‘High Country’ alongside Lakes Hawea and Wanaka to the West Coast where the landscape dramatically changes to dense rainforest. There is the opportunity to visit the face of Fox or Franz Josef Glaciers and explore the special charm of West Coast gold rush towns. Your tour concludes with a beautiful ride alongside Lake Brunner followed by a traverse through the Southern Alps back to Christchurch.
Note: Tour ends on the evening of day 8.
