A 7 day cycle spectacular, we start on the East Coast beaches of Sumner and make our way to the native beech forests of the Lewis Pass and the Paparoa Range.
â€œ I would like to thank everyone involved for a wonderful experience. I have travelled to NZ before but this is the first time I have ridden and it is without doubt the best way to enjoy and appreciate such a beautiful country. My trusty bike was well maintained (a big thank you to your mechanic). The tour guide, Rossco, was experienced and his knowledge and history of NZ and the area through which we rode certainly enhanced the tour. I can and have been recommending the Adventure South experience to my cycling friends. I hope to be able to join you again to see more of the South Island by bikeâ€?.
