About the Experience

Get on a bike and ride the West Coast’s Wilderness Cycle Trail, complete with stunning scenery, local pubs, and cute cafes along the way. This comfortable ride is graded as "easy" and is suitable for most riders. The amazing natural environment on the trail gives you a look at the South Island's West Coast as well as opportunity to stop at gorgeous spots (that you can't get to by road!) and eateries as you go. The team at West Coast Rail Trail organise it all for you, provide you with a comfort bike, detailed ride plan and provide advice with backup. Just get yourself to Greymouth and they'll do the rest (they can also arrange your travel to Greymouth if required - additional costs apply). The package also includes a beautiful home base with two nights of accommodation. You'll stay in a three-bedroom holiday house which has two tiled bathrooms, with each bedroom having its own key. Those purchasing a two-person voucher will get a room of their own with a queen sized bed and flat screen TV (bathroom, kitchen, lounge etc is shared. A twin bedroom option is available, or upgrade to a bedroom with ensuite for an additional $35 payable direct to the operator.) A group of four or a group of six will get the whole house to themselves. The home has WiFi, a large lounge with TV and kitchen/dining facilities. Get into the great outdoors and discover this West Coast gem for yourself - snap up a voucher today!
