A2O Cycle Tours
Point of difference
We don't just show you where to ride, we give you a complete local experience that allows you to love this trail as much as we do...
WEEK LONG FULLY SUPPORTED TOURS with the A2O Cycle Trail experts. Small group, fully inclusive and fully supported tours along the entire A2O trail, from Mt Cook Village to Oamaru.
We've been operating on the A2O since the day it opened and we use this extensive knowledge to design our tours to give you a full local experience. We’ve selected accommodation options, food choices and side trips to complement this. We limit our tours to a maximum of 10 people which ensures we are able to guarantee exceptional service. Everything is included in the price (excluding alcohol) to ensure you don’t have to pay for anything once on tour. We run back to back tours throughout the season, all our tours start on a Monday morning from Queenstown.
We are one of the few companies who take you along the entire length of the cycle trail by flying you, by helicopter, across the Tasman River to the official start at Tasman Point. We are also the only cycle tour company who is allowed to guide you to the Glacier Lakes in the Aoraki Mt Cook National Park to view the icebergs before you start the trail.
After the stunning alpine region of the first 4 sections in the Southern Alps, we lead you along the trail as it meanders through the Waitaki Valley, past the hydro electricity lakes and along the Vanished World limestone wonders with some fun and interesting side trips on the way to Oamaru at the Pacific Ocean.
The riding is spread over 6 days, with the stopping points arranged to ensure the cycling is achievable for most abilities and average fitness levels. With our trips being fully supported, we are able to cater for mixed ability riders, and even non-riders, within the same group. Although our scheduled cycle tours are for no more than 10 people, we are able to customize tours for larger private groups, if required.
To join one of our scheduled tours or to arrange a private itinerary just for you and your friends, call or email us for more information. We also trade under the business 'Not a Rail Trail'.
