Bike and Walking holiday in New Zealand

Jump to last reply

I am thinking of doing a bike and or bike/walking holiday with my son (23) in New Zealand later this year or early next year. I have searched lots of sites and am now totally confused. Can anyone recommend a tour company - I don't want to do my own thing, I need support vehicle (my son has done a fair bit of riding, I haven't) The Otago Trail looks good for me but perhaps too tame for him. The holidays seem to vary so much in price, accommodation and what they offer. Fodors "Nelson" can you recommend anywhere near you? I looked at Backroads and their prices are exhorbitant compared with everyone else!! But is it a case of you pays for what you gets? I would need a very comfy bike and some tours just have 'ordinary' rent a bikes.

Any suggestions would be wonderful. Also when would be the best time to go weather wise, I get the feeling it is awfully unpredictable. (I am only coming from Sydney!!)
