Day 1 – Airport meet & greet. We’ll pick you up and drop you straight into mountain biking goodness! Day one starts with a bang riding some of Nelson's best singletrack. You'll quickly learn why this place is touted as New Zealand's hidden MTB mecca. Ride 2-3 hours / 15-20km

 

Day 2 – Just outside of Nelson lies some of the country's best riding. Today you'll ride an endless flowing singletrack lined with epic coastal views over the epic coasts and coves.  Ride 4-7 hours / 30-65km

 

Day 3 - With a big day in the legs, take a taxi New Zealand style - heli up to a mountain top and ride a mix of technical and flowing singletrack all the way down. Expect big views, great descents and a day full of adventure. Ride 4 hours / 29km

 

Day 4 – Scenery so good they filmed Lord Of The Rings scenes here. But it won't be the scenery that stuns you when you start riding. An expert level trail combining every style of riding, from slow and technical to fast and flowing, rocky to rooty, hardpack to loose pebbles. A challenge for all those who ride it, it will leave you wanting more.Ride 4-5 hours / 25-30km
