The longest of Ngā Haerenga Great Rides of New Zealand serves up remarkable South Island scenery on its way from the foot of the Southern Alps all the way to the Pacific Ocean.
Aoraki/Mt Cook is New Zealand’s highest mountain and one of many stunning sights on this unforgettable cycle journey. Amidst braided rivers, glacier-carved valleys, turquoise hydro-lakes, and tussock-covered highlands you can view penguins, taste local wines, and soak in a hot pool under the stars. Welcoming hosts, great accommodation, and excellent food make the Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail (A2O) a cycling holiday to remember.
The Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail (A2O) is divided into nine sections across mostly easy terrain including canal paths, cross-country track, quiet backroads and old railway lines.
Ride its length in 4–7 days or choose shorter rides suitable for all abilities.
