Molesworth High Country

5 Days Moderate

From scenic wine regions to surreal mountain landscapes this trip in the Northern Canterbury and Marlborough districts is a delight. From Christchurch, cycle the quiet rural back roads towards the emerging wine growing district of Waipara Valley, where we discover its history before soaking up the therapeutic qualities of the Hanmer Springs hot pools. Flanked by stark mountain ranges, we cycle the Molesworth Valley along isolated roads towards our lodging at Molesworth Station, a remote back country merino sheep farm nestled under Mt. Tapuae-o-Uenuku, the highest mountain outside of the Southern Alps. Enjoy an evening dining with your hosts on one of New Zealand's largest family-run stations before jumping back in the saddle to cycle the Awatere Valley, where vineyards overlook the Pacific Ocean. A visit to the 'marine capital' of Kaikoura provides an opportunity to view whales, dolphins or albatross before returning to Christchurch via a spectacular inland route.
