West Coast Wilderness Trail & Beyond – 6-day supported tour

Created predominantly for the 50+ age group, PureTrails' fully supported tours operate year round so you can experience the magical landscapes of the West Coast Wilderness Trail in all seasons.

Start and finish your tour from Christchurch – home of our PureTrails’ base – or meet us on the Coast. Enjoy the trail on your own bike or hire a high-quality mountain bike or e-bike from our extensive fleet.

This trip also ventures beyond the Wilderness Trail so you can enjoy more of the West Coast region with 220km of riding. Cycle the trail, stay in comfortable ensuite accommodation and enjoy hearty meals. Walk amongst lofty native trees at the Treetop walkway; see the surreal turquoise waters of the Hokitika Gorge. Visit Punakaiki's Pancake Rocks, and ride along the stunning Kawatiri coast at Cape Foulwind. Explore early mining towns, visit the Pike River Memorial and have a drink at the Blackball Hilton. Bike beside Lake Haupiri, and visit a dairy farm for morning tea with the farming family. Stay at Lake Moana with an option to end your adventure on the TranzAlpine train back to Christchurch.
