This cycling vacation starts from our base in Christchurch and heads straight into the hills of Banks Peninsula, for spectacular views of Christchurch, the Southern Alps and the extinct volcano that forms Lyttleton Harbor. Then it’s your choice of a gentle ride around the bays, or the demanding hills of the crater rim, as you head to the small seaside town of Diamond Harbor.

From Diamond Harbor it’s a moderate climb to stunning views of the southern aspect of Banks Peninsula and then a gentle cycle alongside Lakes Forsyth and Ellesmere and onto the small town of Little River with its quiet and relaxed pace. From Little River you return to Christchurch via a different route with the option of taking in lunch or wine tasting at the vineyards on the way back to Christchurch to complete our trip.

Day 1: We will meet you at your accommodation in Christchurch with bicycles and equipment and you then cycle to Diamond Harbor.
