We’ll greet you in Greymouth at 12:30pm and shuttle you to the humble and crafty township of Hokitika. Once here, we will drop your luggage off to your accommodation, pick up the bikes and continue on to Ross to start your first ride on the trail.
You will cycle through wetlands and native bush, taking in incredible views of the mighty Mt Cook and Mt Tasman before giving the bikes a rest at the Treetop Walkway. Here, you will experience the native forest, birdsong and views of Lake Mahinapua by foot from the heights of a tree canopy.
In the evening take a boat cruise up the stream to Lake Mahinapua itself, following the original route used by early explorers and gold prospectors.
Accommodation tonight is at Scenic Waterways, which is approx. 3km before Hokitika. From the self-contained cottage-style accommodation you will have views of the Southern Alps and the native fauna of the Mahinapua waterway that meanders through the property.
