Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail

The Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail is truly one of New Zealand's great rides!  For over 300 km visitors can experience some of the most beautiful scenery New Zealand has to offer.

Suitable for all ages, the trail is an easy grade, and offers 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.

Complimentary pick-up of guests and bikes from the trail end at the Oamaru Harbour can be arranged with Cape View Cottage at the time of booking, as can requirements for a continental breakfast for an additional fee.
