Got a bicycle bucket list? Then it’s time to add the picture-perfect Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail in New Zealand’s South Island.
The full adventure (four to six days) begins at Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park and cuts across the island to Oamaru in North Otago, with overnighters in lodges, lakeside retreats and even working high-country stations along the way.
Highlights include stellar mountain, lakeside and ocean scenery, an abundance of fresh NZ air, and the option to stargaze together in a 38°C hot spring pool at Tekapo Springs (on a floating hammock, no less). The clincher, though, is the option of electronic bikes (e-bikes) to help you up the hills!
