During the tour, you will see spectacular landscapes which constantly change. You'll be biking on several fantastic trails, the Alps 2 Ocean, the West Coast Wilderness Trail, and some Queenstown trails, including the Otago Rail Trail.

This combined bus and cycling tour gives you the opportunity to experience the highlights of the South Island in a relatively short time frame.
