Kiwi Style Bike Tours are teaming up with Adventure South for this fantastic excursion to the remote and spectacular southern most roads of New Zealand.

With our international tours on hold due to Covid-19, our guides are excited to have teamed up with local New Zealand company Adventure South to offer ‘Our Beautiful Back Yard’ Collection.   Our February 2021 Southern Coast Cycle tour takes us from Queenstown, down to the Southern Coast and back up the Eastern Coast of the South Island.  This quiet South East corner of NZ delivers everything we love about cycle tours – remote, rugged, beautiful, spectacular and challenging – it ticks all the boxes.

We have chosen to partner up with Adventure South as they are a very well run local company that shares similar values to Kiwi Style Bike Tours.  Like us, Adventure South strive to deliver challenging and fun cycle tours, set in the most beautiful places that are safely accessible by bike.  Some of our Kiwi Style guides have experience with regular guiding duties for Adventure South during our European off season.

This tour is operated by Adventure South, using your familiar Kiwi Style guides to showcase ‘Our Beautiful Back Yard’ Collection.
