This itinerary visits two of New Zealand's more challenging cycle trails, Dun Mountain Trail and Old Ghost Road, and it continues to some of the best mountain bike parks in the country. The itinerary is flexible so you can take as much time as you like to explore a huge range of attractions along the way including glacier walks, rafting, or bungy jumping. While the drive is stunning, roads in this part of the country can be narrow and windy. Make sure you familiarise yourself with driving in New Zealand before setting out on this epic mountain biking adventure.
