Overview
The Te Anau - Manapouri Cycle Trail is the only cycle trail that runs alongside the winding Waiau River and through the majestic Fiordland National Park. On this half-day cycling trip, you’ll be dropped at the end of the trail with your hired bicycle and given all the time you need to cycle back to Te Anau, taking in the native bird and plant life along the trail and the mountains of Fiordland in the distance.
What to Expect

The scenic bike trail runs along the Waiau river between Te Anau and Manapouri and is suitable for riders of all skill levels! Getting transport to the end of the trail gives you freedom to head back to Te Anau at your own pace. This allows time to explore the beauty of the area and stop for plenty of photos (you'll want to take lots!!). The Waiau River is world famous for trout fishing, jet boating, Lord Of The Rings and much more!

A 30km trip of world-class scenic bike trails. Suitable for all skill levels.
A standard mountain bike rental of 4 hours is included.

Moderate fitness required. There are several hills along the trail. If fitness may be a concern we recommend upgrading to an electric bike.

Electric bike upgrades are available. You can even pre-book a picnic lunch to take with you (please give 24hours notice).

All tours start from Wild Rides HQ in the Te Anau town center. You must arrive at least 15mins before your departure time so you can fill out rental agreements and go through a quick briefing with information on the trail. You will also be given a map to be sure you never get lost.
