The Alps 2 Ocean cycle trail is the longest continuous ride in New Zealand.  

From New Zealand's highest mountain, Aoraki  Mount Cook, the trail descends over 2000 ft and travels 300 km to the coastal town of Oamaru.  This trail showcases New Zealand’s geological, geographical and historical highlights from  the Southern Alps to the Pacific Ocean.

Experience an unspoilt paradise where people come from all over the world to enjoy stunning vistas, wide open spaces and expansive landscapes. 

The Alps 2 Ocean trail encompasses a World Heritage National Park, glacial fed lakes, hydro dam lakes, golden tussock land, limestone cliffs, Maori Rock art and more.

Suitable for all abilities of cyclists, the trail includes a mixture of off and on road trail, which can be enjoyed in sections or in its entirety.

The Alps 2 Ocean cycle trail is a joint initiative involving the Waitaki and Mackenzie District Councils and the New Zealand Cycle Trail project.
