Great Kiwi Escape

Route and prices

The ultimate bike riding holiday

The Great Kiwi Escape is not your typical cycling tour. It’s a fully-supported nine-day bike riding holiday that will let you explore the breathtaking scenery of New Zealand’s spectacular South Island.

During the day, you’ll ride past picturesque lakes, mountains and towns including Queenstown, Wanaka, Mount Cook and the iconic Milford Sound. At night, you’ll relax, refuel and refresh in three to five-star accommodation.

There’ll also be plenty of time to explore the regions at your own pace and experience the famous warm, welcoming and laid-back culture of New Zealand.
