Our New Zealand bike tours on the NZ cycle trails are a fun and convenient way to cycle and explore the stunning regions of New Zealand’s South Island by bike.

Discover the satisfaction of cycling through a breathtaking visual landscape, where you can hear the cries of the birds and the trickle of the streams. Feel the warmth of the sun and the breeze in your hair. Smell the long dry grass as you cycle on your South Island tours. Our bike tours NZ are on dedicated NZ cycle trails, including the Otago Rail Trail and Alps to Ocean Trail, or on quiet country roads.

Your tour guide and support vehicle are there to support you during the bike tours NZ, often appearing around a stretch of cycle trail with a welcome cup of tea and snack. Our biggest asset is our fantastic guiding team, who are always there to encourage and support you on your cycle tour. They do everything they can to ensure you have a great experience, whether it’s encouraging you to challenge yourself on the trail, giving you a lift in the van, or helping with your luggage (and the odd bits and pieces that are inevitably left behind!) Though your guide does not participate in the cycling, they have a wealth of knowledge and are only too happy to provide any guidance you may need or cycle repair support.

If the weather conditions are not favourable or you simply need a break, your support vehicle is always available as ‘back up’.

With Pure Trails New Zealand bike tours it’s not just about the scenery and the cycling. In addition to cycling the NZ cycle trails we go tiki-touring in our vehicle, visiting the local sights and meeting the local people in the small rural communities we travel through.
