This tour explores the quieter back-roads of the Basin by cycle where few tourists venture, and the only crowds you will encounter are of the merino kind. It also features 100km of cycling on the easier parts of the Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail and is a good tour for people who are not able to cycle the full trail. Spend time in the quaint village of Lake Tekapo with its stunning night sky and amazing mountainous backdrop. The ever-changing vistas and ‘big sky’ wide open landscape of Mackenzie Country will take your breath away.
