Why get just any shuttle to the Alps 2 Ocean when you can go on an adventure?

Christchurch Adventure Taxis make it easy for travellers arriving in Christchurch with their own bikes. Our custom-built bike trailer makes sure your pride and joy is in safe hands while you sit back and enjoy the spectacular South Island scenery as we transport you and your bike to any place you wish to start or end along the Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail

We provide the following:
• Pick up / drop off at Christchurch International airport
• Transfer from Christchurch to Tekapo / Twizel / Mount Cook or whichever entry point you prefer
• Pick up from Oamaru (or your requested finishing point) back to Christchurch
• Prices from $95pp one way / $165pp return

We can arrange bike hire too and have bikes ready when you arrive either at the airport or waiting at your accommodation - it couldn’t be any easier to experience the New Zealand visitors come to see!

We also have a range of packages to incorporate the best of Christchurch - visit our website for more information on adding in a city bike tour or local riding in the Port Hills before or after you complete the A2O.
