Day 1:

Welcome. Our tour begins with a scenic coach journey from Christchurch across the Canterbury Plains and over Arthurs Pass to Greymouth.

Today from Greymouth we’ll start cycling  down a coastal path on a raised dune system. Along the way enjoy views over several small settlements and the surrounding countryside as we follow the spectacular coastline of the Tasman Sea. The trail then continues on the scenic route south to Taramakau, between Greymouth and Hokitika. Turning inland from here, you’ll head to Kumara along a historic tramway. Overnight stay is in a charming historic hotel in Kumara.

The West Coast Wilderness Cycle Trail continues this morning with a ride through rainforest as we head towards Milltown.

This section of the route (and indeed the trail itself) is one of New Zealand’s most popular cycle routes, offering stunning scenery and fascinating local history. We will pass through some of the best stands of native forest left in New Zealand on your journey today.

Overnight stay is in Hokitika.

 

 

Day 3:

Your ride today starts at the head of the Arahura River, which rises from the Southern Alps and meets the Tasman Sea just north of Hokitika.

You’ll pass water raceways, rich dairy farmland and the tranquil Lake Kaniere, described by some as” the most beautiful lake in New Zealand”. Formed by glacial erosion in the last ice age.

Second overnight stay is in Hokitika.

 

Day 4:

Day starts with an easy coastal ride, then follows the bush tramway past Lake Mahinapua. It is a great ride through typical West Coast bush and wetlands.

The final leg of the cycle ride follows a disused railway line with a number of distinctive wooden bridges and wild west coast coastal scenery to your next and final stop the gold mining, farming and forestry town of Ross.

From Ross we return to Christchurch.
