4.8
#2 of 7 in Outdoors in Oamaru
Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail is a 301 km (1,000 mi) trail from the Southern Alps to the Pacific Ocean. Allow 4-6 days for the entire ride, or simply try out a day excursion. Whichever option you choose, the trail is sure to provide a memorable experience. Amidst the grandeur of braided rivers, glacier-carved valleys, turquoise hydro-lakes, tussock highlands, and rural plains are a host of tantalizing off-the-bike activities including wine-tasting, penguin-spotting, glider flights and just quietly soaking in alfresco hot tubs. It’s no wonder people come from all over the world to enjoy the stunning vistas and expansive landscapes.
