Cycling Tours - South Island, New Zealand
South Island West Coast Tour
A wild and wondrous journey including two of the world's most scenic train journeys and a feast of dramatic landscapes; rugged coastlines, raging rivers, mountainous peaks, thermal reserves and native beech forests. Travel into the heart of the Southern Alps to the parklands of the Lewis Pass, where snowcapped mountains surround you and steam billows from natural hot spring pools. From the Lewis, journey along the Buller River to the breathtaking beauty of the untamed west coast, where you will cradle the wild coastline to Greymouth.
"We had a great time of our group cycle tour of the South Island. We felt that we were able to see so much in such a short period or time and the design of this tour is definantly what made that possible. It was also a great challenge and a huge achieviment for both of us to ride from one side of the island to the other."
