In early 2024 Trail Journeys purchased Trail Adventures. Trail Adventures previous owners Aimee and Vaughn had built a terrific business. The transition was seamless as our company cultures were very well aligned; both companies had its customers at the heart of all decisions.

We’re proud to be able to help you to experience this stunning part of NZ and the unique Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail.

The Extra (Metaphorical) Mile

It sounds so cheesy when we say it out loud but when we sat down to work out what makes the Trail Adventures service different, it really was that we’re a small family business and we do our best to ensure each one of our customers gets a personalised experience – you’re never just a number to us.

At the heart of the Trail Adventures tours and service is the genuine love of the outdoors and a need to share the incredible New Zealand country side, sucking in fresh air and soaking in some Vitamin D while enjoying first-rate hospitality on the trail less travelled.

From Alps 2 Ocean

Trail Adventures has developed each A2O cycle trail tour package to offer maximum enjoyment for our adventurers from start to finish.

That means you get top quality gear and a range of unique accommodations with incredible hospitality you’ll never forget. Not to mention the best scenery in NZ and the sense of accomplishment that goes along with completing this wonderful cycle tour!


We booked with Trail Adventures in March 2021 for our Alps to Ocean ride. Vaughan and Aimee were friendly and super organised, and they were good communicators before and during our trip. The accommodation they organised was great. The e-bikes were well maintained and very comfortable.
Highly recommend Trail Adventures!

Three e-bikes, 1 push bike, and 1 heli-ride took us from Mt Cook to Duntroon with Vaughan always just a phone call or message away to support us. He’s a can-do chap and a pleasure to be around. He happily personalised our itinerary and really clocked-up the k’s supporting us. 4 days were wet, wet, wet, but the last 3 were mostly dry and lovely – we loved every minute of our ride. Our accommodation and lunches were fantastic, and our dinners at Father Ted’s were incredible.

The accommodation organised was wonderful – a high country sheep station cottage, hotels and lodges with a feeling of another time – spacious and comfortable and so welcome after a day of riding.

Dinner and breakfast were included in several of these stops and a packed lunch in a paper bag was always delicious.  Vaughan ferried our bags from one stop to the next, checked on our progress and gave lots of handy hints about the trail.

Anyone who is contemplating doing the A2O book it now – a fantastic week of riding and Trail Adventures made it a great experience.
