ALPS 2 OCEAN CYCLE TRAIL
From Aoraki Mount Cook to the coastal township of Oamaru, the Alps 2 Ocean cycleway weaves its way through the spectacular scenery of the Southern Alps, part of the Nga Haerenga NZ cycle trails network. The tussock land and glacial lakes of the Mackenzie Basin feed Waitaki river and the hydro electric power generators along its length. Over its 312 km duration of largely dedicated cycle way, the spectacular trail descends 780 metres creating an ideal Grade 1 & 2 bike experience for almost everyone to enjoy, from first timers and family groups to the vastly experienced riders.
The Alps to Ocean cycle vacation offers the opportunity for multi-day self-guided or guided trips, providing a safe and social, group or family holiday. Quality bikes are available for rent or bring your own. Luggage transfers allow for easy cycling and quality accommodation of all levels is available. Local shuttles are always close at hand to provide support or bring you back to your vehicle at the start of the trail.
Come and enjoy a rewarding vacation, from either a single day cycle experience through to a challenging 6-7 day bike trip.
