WITH A population of around one million people, New Zealand's South Island offers wide-open spaces to ride through at your leisure, as well as the added enjoyment of safe, fume-free roads, and little or no traffic.
Explore New Zealand's stunning South Island. After collecting your bike from VFR-NZ in the centre of Christchurch, you're free to explore at your leisure. There's the beautiful wine growing region of Marlborough in the north of the island and Fjordland to the south west, or there's the dramatic tropical rainforest and Franz Joseph Glacier on the west coast, reached after an amazing ride across the Southern Alps and close by Mount Cook.
