We start this magical trip in Christchurch and cycle  the backbone of the Southern Alps via Mt Cook Village, Tekapo, Wanaka, and end in Queenstown. It is a trip of amazing mountain scenery, rolling plains, interesting local history and hospitality.

There are several short walks at Mt Cook National Park and offer the team a  Hooker Valley Walk. The walk  offers beautiful alpine views including the Mueller Glacier, Mt Cook/Aoraki on fine days and the Hooker Lake for those who continue far enough. There is also a shorter walk to Kea Point.The recently built Sir Edmund Hillary Alpine Centre ( with 3-D movie, planetarium and museum) is also well worth a visit.

We have a free day at Lake Tekapo to enjoy all that this town has to offer, to either enjoy a relaxing time in the hot pools, or  a walk /cycle up to the Observatory.

This is a trip  has a lot of variety, Hydro Power dams, Lakes, mountain pass, superb views of the highest mountain in NZ, Gorges, orchards, barren Mckenzie country, and hot tubs in Omarama after a long day on the saddle.
