The Discovery, like the Escape, has 5 cycling days. The main differences are in the locations you stay and the distances you cycle. With this option you will stay at Twizel, a town built to house workers constructing the Upper Waitaki hydroelectricity scheme and designed to be temporary however proudly still standing today. You’ll also stay in Omarama, nestled in a broad basin between mountain ranges, where you can watch gliders soar in the sky and have a relaxing soak in a private hot tub filled with pure mountain water under the starry night sky. Kurow is another spot where you’ll stay, well-known and popular for it’s wine and world famous (in New Zealand!) for being the town where Richie McCaw grew up.
All of this with friendly support provided along the way, should you need it. Begin your adventure from the official start point at Aoraki/Mount Cook or the alternative start at Tekapo. This experience has flexible start dates to suit your needs.
