Your New Zealand biking vacation/adventure starts at Picton. A picturesque fishing town at the northern tip of the South Island. It is a small town (pop.2,600) nestling under the bush-clad hills of Queen Charlotte Sound, named by Captain Cook in 1770.

Our knowledgeable, friendly local guides take pride in showcasing their country for you, while you cycle as little or as much as you want.

Start with a magical ride around the Marlborough Sounds coastline, to Nelson, an attractive small city famous for its high sunshine hours.  Nelson has become a haven for artists, craft breweries and boutique wineries. Your South Island Adventure continues with a gradual climb to Nelson Lakes National Park. A spectacular Buller Gorge to the wild West Coast.

We stay at Punakaiki, right by the beach and see Pancake Rocks and Blowholes at Paparoa National Park. From here you can either return to Christchurch or continue on our West Coast tour.
