On this 8 day, 1,096 km journey covering the full length of New Zealand’s Southern Island, we cycle from the Nelson Lakes in the north to one of the most southerly cities in the world, Invercargill. Cycling through varied terrain and breathtaking scenery, together we watch the sea surge at Pancake Rocks, climb the steep roads to Fox Glacier, and make an exhilarating descent from the summit of the Crown Range. With stunning views from the mighty Mt. Cook and snowcapped Southern Alps, as a peloton we ride 188 km across the Waimea Plains toward Christchurch to celebrate our fantastic journey.

Your adventure through New Zealand is fully-inclusive! If you are raising money for a charity, we will sort out all charity formalities for you, and we also offer pre-challenge briefings in London where you can meet you cycle leaders. As a team we fly to Christchurch to take on our exhilarating journey across New Zealand.
