Spend two awesome weeks riding the roads of New Zealand's spectacular South Island. With most day's cycling exceeding the 100 km (62 mi) mark, you'll need to have a good level of fitness and biking experience to really get the most out of this epic trip. That said, there is full support with the tour, so if it becomes too much at any stage you are welcome to hop in the bus and enjoy the scenery from there.
Ten out of the fourteen days are organized cycling days, with two 'rest' days where you can opt to do some more cycling if you like (the other two days are the arrival and departure days). Rest day might be the wrong term to use as you'll be spending one of them in the adventure capital of NZ, Queenstown, and the other in the glacier village of Franz Josef. So there's plenty on offer if you want to get involved with the fun in both of these destinations.
The road cycling, however, is the main attraction on this superb tour, and you will be spoilt for sublime vistas, memorable cycling and fantastic company as you journey from south to north on this adventurous road biking discovery through New Zealand.
