This is one tough ride and not to be taken lightly, although the remoteness and surroundings in this epic part of the country will make up for it (on a good day). There is a remote bike carry section, long km's in big country, some incredibly steep rough 4WD tracks, and unpredictable weather. If you make it out, it's a rewarding experience.

It is recommended you get hold of a copy of "Classic New Zealand Mountain Bike Rides" by the Kennett Brothers who have a very good description of the route.

Expect it to take between 8 and 12 hours. Take maps NZTopo50 CD07 Manapouri, CD06 Deep Cove and CE07 Lake Monowai.

Access Info

Catch a tour boat from Manapouri to the hydro power station at West Arm (one way ticket approx. $42 + $7 for bike). Then ride all the way back to Manapouri.
