Cycle Trails

New Zealand CYCLE TRAIL trips

Cycling on the New Zealand Cycle Trail network is one of the best ways to discover NZ’s stunning landscapes, local hospitality and unique culture.

Predominantly off-road, these purpose-built Cycle Trails are suited for people of all ages and abilities from beginner and ‘rusty riders’ to experienced cyclists.

Along every trail there are opportunities to stop and take in uninterrupted views not accessible by any other form of transport as well as exploring remote townships and iconic landmarks along the way before relaxing in our unique accommodation. Our support vehicle is never far away to pick up any tired legs, as well as allowing you to explore extra highlights along the trail that are out of pedals reach.

‘Nga Haerenga, The New Zealand Cycle Trails’ came to life with funding from the Government in 2009 as a way to generate economic, social and environmental benefits for NZ communities. Today, more than 1 million people use the 23 dedicated Great Rides per year. ‘Nga Haerenga’ means ‘the journeys’, both in a physical and spiritual sense, which is exactly what you will experience when you ride the trails with Adventure South NZ.

From the popular Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail to the iconic Otago Central Rail Trail and rugged West Coast Wilderness, take a look at our multi-day Cycle Trail options below and join us on an adventure of a lifetime.
