3 Day Self-Guided Banks Peninsula Cycle Tour This tour incorporates a mix of on- and off-road cycling along twisting roads, remote gravel tracks and disused rail trail. For those who relish a challenge, rugged single track also awaits!
There’s plenty to discover as you pedal. The rocky coastline of the peninsula is home to New Zealand’s endangered Hector’s dolphin, penguin colonies and native fur seals. The charming town of Akaroa makes a good lunch or overnight stop, and is Canterbury’s oldest town, founded in 1840 by French settlers.
With a little under 5000m of climbing over three days this tour is not for the faint-hearted, but it’s perfect for hill lovers and adventure seekers. Read more here >>
