Alps to Ocean Trail

5 Days Easy-Moderate

We collect you from your accommodation before heading to our bike depot on the city fringe to fit you out with your hire bike. Once we have our gear sorted we head south across the plains towards Geraldine. After a lunch stop we continue into the Mackenzie Basin, driving past Lake Tekapo to Lake Pukaki and the start of our great cycling epic. The first 6km cycle section is on a sealed road providing a good opportunity to get familiar with your bike. Then the fun starts as you enter the 8km Lake Pukaki foreshore section, a purpose built trail with a lovely smooth surface that follows the fringe of Lake Pukaki all the way to the spillway. Another trail leads across the bridge to the Pukaki Info centre. Enjoy a coffee or ice cream before embarking on the final section of the day on the 10km trail across the Pukaki Flats to Twizel featuring great views of the immense Mackenzie Basin and the late afternoon sun falling across the Benmore Range. In Twizel we stay at the comfortable Mackenzie Country Inn and enjoy dinner in the Inn lounge. (L/D)
