The Alps to Ocean Cycle Trail

The Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail reaches from Mount Cook to Oamaru.

Cycle through New Zealand’s highest mountains, past glistening lakes, pausing in tranquil small towns like Kurow, and then celebrating the end of the trail down by the ocean.

The cycle trail is an easy to intermediate grade, which makes it suitable for all age groups.

Make time for about 4-6 days to cycle from the great Southern Alps all the way to the Pacific Ocean.

And why not stay an extra night with us at Riverside Bed and Breakfast in Kurow!

To find out what it is really like out on the trail watch this breathtaking video filmed in early 2017 by Dougal Jackson. You will note the extreme changes in the weather …. so pack your thermals and a rain jacket as well as your sun screen!

Now doesn’t that look like a whole heap of fun, and what about the stunning scenery! Riverside Bed & Breakfast recommends a small number of local businesses that can supply everything you need to explore this amazing trail, from a complete tailored package to just bike rental.

Trail Adventures

As a group cycling the A20 we had the experience to enjoy 1 night at the Riverside B & B. We were welcomed so warmly by our hosts Kieren and Lyn. Our rooms were extremely comfortable. We certainly enjoyed the breakfast that was offered before heading off on our ride again. We didn't want to leave as we felt so comfortable there. Thank you Kieren and Lyn for a wonderful overnight stay.
