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. To visit Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail on your trip to Oamaru, use our Oamaru itinerary builder.
