Cycle Trail Partners

Helping give back to the trails

Did you know that every time you travel with Adventure South NZ you are helping us give back to the trails and communities we travel through?

Since we began operating our guided cycling and hiking tours in 1992, it has always been our focus to help sustain and promote trail development. To help us achieve this, we have become affiliated with a number of Cycle Trail trusts and tourism organisations within New Zealand.

The New Zealand Cycle Trail | Official Partner

The New Zealand Cycle Trail is a national project to build a world-class network of cycle trails. Adventure South is an official partner, supporting all the great work NZ Cycle Trails do to build, create and encourage cycling on our fantastic cycle trails.
