This is New Zealand, in all its colour and beauty - from the highest mountain, past great lakes and rivers, down to the ocean. Suitable for all ages, the 8 section trail is an easy to intermediate grade, offering a pleasing mix of on and off-road trails which link the Southern Alps to the Pacific Ocean. Allow 4-6 days for the entire ride, or simply try out a day excursion. Whichever option you choose, the Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail is sure to be a memorable experience. « less
