      301 km from the Southern Alps to the Pacific Ocean

      The Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail is New Zealand in all its colour and beauty - from our highest mountains, past great lakes and rivers, and down to the ocean. Suitable for all ages, the 9 section bike trail is an easy to intermediate grade, linking the Southern Alps to the Pacific Ocean.

      Allow 4-6 days for the entire ride, or simply try a day excursion. Whichever option you choose, the A2O Cycle Trail is sure to be a memorable experience.
