Bike & Walk

Explore the district on two feet or two wheels. Bike and walk trails criss-cross the region, including the Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail that links the Southern Alps to the Pacific Ocean.

Travel through unspoilt high country, rolling hills or coastal areas as you explore the beautiful South Canterbury region.

From coastal to sub-alpine, short walks to multi-day hikes, South Canterbury offers a rich variety of tracks and trails to explore on foot or by bike. Enjoy tracks along riverways or the South Pacific Coast, through native forest and wetlands, through parks and reserves, rolling farmland or historic high country stations.

Bike hire, self-ride or guided tours to suit every age, families and fitness levels are across all three districts of Timaru, Mackenzie and Waimate in South Canterbury.
