Highly recommended service by a dedicated team and crew. This is a very efficient service that never missed a beat. We stayed in either Hokitika or Greymouth and were shuttled to and from starting points on the Wilderness Trail ensuring we had time for a beer and look around while we waited. Timing was always perfect and service with a smile. It is worth noting that we do not recommend anyone stay at Cowboys Paradise, so this made the shuttle service back to Hokitika for the night and then return in the morning very necessary and it was again, perfect. Well done and Thanks.

Great Company, not only providing the service we needed for bike hire, bag drop at our accommodations and personal shuttle service, but they went over and above to assist us. A very friendly and informative team. Thank you, your help was much appreciated.

The Wilderness Trail Shuttle provides an excellent service for people who want to cycle the beautiful West Coast Wilderness Trail. Chris from the Wilderness Trail Shuttle provided us with bikes and helmets. Both were excellent condition. He dropped us at the start point. Chris explained the trail in detail and marked the map for us. He cycled the first 2k with us. Chris gave a brief yet informative insight into the local area and its wildlife. He gave us a walkie talkie so that we could contact him in the event of any mishaps. Chris answered all our questions by phone prior to our cycle!

The trail itself was beautiful. The scenery was simply stunning. Cowboy Paradise was a real treat! The cycle was a challenge but extremely enjoyable. There was plenty of variety to the trail and it is excellently signposted. My friends and I loved the trail!!! 😊❤️🇳🇿

Overall Chris from Wilderness Trail Shuttle provided a professional service that enabled us to enjoy one epic Big Day Out on the breathtaking West Coast Wilderness Trail! 😊👌🏻

We had two shuttle rides - beginning (Hokitika to Ross with Bob) and end (Greymouth to Kumara with Chris). Both on time (or early at our request) and great experiences. Both drivers shared willingly of their knowledge of the region, and its history.

But special big ups to Chris who is a driving force behind all things Wilderness Trail, including writing the guidebook. This is a guy who wears his big West Coast heart on his sleeve, and should be treasured for that.

Thanks guys.

We were thinking of doing the west coast wilderness trail but didn't have time for the 4 days. We decided to do a 1day ride. So I contacted Chris at Wilderness Trail Shuttle by email and phone. He suggested the Big Day Out ride. It was amazing. The ride goes through stunning rain forest and country side. The most stunning day of riding I have ever done. I have travelled a lot and the amazing landscape we saw today was one of the most beautiful places I have been to. Chris and hokitika cycles work together to get the gear and drop us off. Chris very helpful and knowledgable.
To get to H okitika we arrived in Christchurch, caught the train to Greymouth ( a beautiful trip) then the intercity bus to Hokitika. All very easy. Fantastic landscape.

Booked last minute and Chris was very accommodating. I left my keys in Kumara (!) and he arranged to pick them up and get them to Hokitka, which was a massive relief and saved me enormous amounts of hassle. He also contacted me early one morning to suggest the I travel in a different direction as planned so as to avoid a head wind. The resulting tail wind made the trip so much easier and lots of fun. Chris is also very knowledgeable and passionate about the trail itself and very interesting to talk to. Excellent service all round.

We had originally booked to cycle from Hokitika to Ross but because of the wind conditions on the day, the cycle shop recommended we start at Ross instead. The shuttle driver was happy to re-arrange his plans to transport us to Ross and gave us lots of useful tips and local info during the drive. Great service - highly recommend

Chris made the West Coast Trail possible for us picking us up in Christchurch with our 5 bodies and 5 bikes and taking us to Greymouth to start and from Hokitika back to Christchurch at the end. He also gave us great trail information and lots of history that made the trip fabulous. The shuttle was just brilliant. Big, big thanks Chris.

We did the "big day out" biking trip with west coast wilderness. Was amazing! I am an intermediate biker and my wife is a beginner, and we both loved it. It took us 4-5 hours and were were pretty slow going. But it was such a lovely day.

I Would recommend doing the full day, but if you want a shorter trip you could start from cowboys paradise (but then you miss a really good bit!)

Get a gel seat for you bike (can be arranged through the bike shop they work through)!
