Cycling in New Zealand - Otago & Southland (Chapter)
This is the Otago & Southland chapter from Lonely Planet's Cycling New Zealand guidebook.
Scenic and isolated are just a couple words that describe Otago & Southland. Sure, there's a whole lot of space but you're never too far from tourist epicentres like Queenstown and Milford Sound; cities like Dunedin and Invercargill, and quaint towns like Te Anau and Wanaka. There's no shortage of challenging tours either, and plenty of quality mountain biking.
- bungee jump into the adventure capital of the world - Queenstown
- enjoy the art, culture, architecture and utter debauchery of Dunedin
Coverage includes: History, Environment, Climate, Planning, Getting To/From the Rides, The Rides, Otago Peninsula, Central Otago Circuit, The Caitlins Coast, Southern Scenic Route, Western Otago Circuit, Mountain Bike Rides, Towns & Facilities.
