Together with our friends, Alice and Jeremy we organised to spend our Christmas holiday completing the Alps to Ocean in reverse. Predominately as we had heard the views were better and it would be slightly more challenging going uphill. 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.
Discover old historic gold-mining villages, country pubs, rugged scenery and some of the most dramatic landscapes New Zealand has to offer. The Otago Rail Trail is NZ’s first rail-trail and today is well set up with all the amenities you need. Graded for beginners one is able to complete the trail at your own pace over 1,2, or even 5 days.
