Join us for a three day Heaphy Track Cycling package. We travel from Golden Bay through to the West Coast; through lush beech and podocarp forest, expansive tussock downs, over ancient landscapes and down to nikau-palm fringed beaches and pounding surf.
To enjoy the ride you will need to have a good standard of fitness, be an intermediate, or above mountain biker and able to carry a 25-40 litre pack with only your personal items including a sleeping bag.
