C is for cycling

Cycling is a great way to experience the fresh air, wildlife, food and landscapes of New Zealand.

Cycling is a great form of low impact exercise that burns calories, tones the body and boosts the heart rate. A social activity, it ties in well with a holiday and lets you can absorb the tranquil surrounds while keeping your legs turning over. New Zealand offers some singularly Kiwi cycling experiences – pack the bike into a helicopter for a high country adventure, free wheel through famous movie locations and finish the day soaking tired limbs in thermal pools.

Most tracks are open year-round, but some trails in remote or mountainous regions may be closed for winter months. Multi-day tracks offer a variety of basic and luxury accommodation, cafés and food stops.
