Grand guided bike tour

Grand Tour 16-Day South Island Cycle Tour

Your New Zealand Cycling tour/Adventure starts at Picton. A small picturesque fishing town (pop.2,600) nestling under the bush-clad hills of Queen Charlotte Sound, named by Captain Cook in 1770.

Enjoy friendly Kiwi hospitality, superb scenery and terrain that will delight cycle enthusiasts.

We start our cycle tour with a magical ride around the Marlborough Sounds coastline, to Nelson Lakes National Park, and then down spectacular Buller Gorge to the wild West Coast. On our way to Nelson Lakes National Parke we cycle through orchards, farmland and pine plantations.

We stay at Punakaiki, right by the beach and see the Pancake Rocks and Blowholes at Paparoa National Park. Pedal past picture-perfect West Coast lakes and Glaciers and stay at a Wilderness Lodge in the rain forest. Walk to the beach and you may see penguins! Over Haast Pass to sheep country and Wanaka set on beautiful Lake Wanaka, overlooked by Mt Aspiring National Park.
Our last ‘hill’ is the Crown Range – a superb descent to historic Arrowtown before reaching Queenstown, the outdoor capital of New Zealand.
