West Coast

Your West Coast New Zealand Cycle Tour starts in the small community of Punakaiki. Home to the spectacular Pancake Rocks and Blowholes located at Dolomite Point. If you stay in Christchurch before the tour commences, you can take the TranzAlpine train from Christchurch to Greymouth. We can pick you up from Greymouth for a transfer to Punakaiki.

From here we head south, pedalling through lush rainforest, past picture-perfect West Coast Glaciers and lakes. There is a rest day at Wanaka with the opportunity for hiking or sightseeing. We cross Haast Pass to sheep country and Wanaka set on beautiful Lake Wanaka, overlooked by Mt Aspiring National Park.

Your tour includes quiet, off-the-beaten-track backroads, glaciers, rainforests, lakes and snowy peaks. “The Lord of the Rings” was filmed here on the West Coast, (or Te Wahi Pounamu to give it its Maori name). It is rightly recognized as a World Heritage Area.  Your West Coast New Zealand Cycle Tour finishes in Queenstown.  Surrounded by mountain peaks (including the famous Remarkables) and set on Lake Wakatipu. Queenstown has much to offer.
