A fantastic opportunity to cycle some of the best Rail Trails in New Zealand!

Sydney to Auckland including Milford Sound aboard Celebrity Solstice | A choice of two departures: 20 Nov to 4 Dec, 2019 | 7 to 19 Feb, 2020

Cruise on the luxury Celebrity Solstice from Sydney to Auckland via Melbourne, Fiordland National Park, Dunedin, Wellington, Picton and Tauranga. In each port of call on this cruise, you will be met by a coach and transferred to a fantastic bike track, many of which are the best rail trails in New Zealand.

Cycle as much or as little as you like

  • Each day, you are provided with a bike and have an option of a shorter or a longer section of the days ride.
  • Most of the rides are on rail trails and are relatively flat as the trains were not able to climb steep hills.
  • All of the rides showcase spectacular scenery of Australia and New Zealand.
  • An easier section might be approximately 30km, which would take three to four hours of easy riding; a harder ride might be 50 to 60km, which would take approximately five hours.
  • Each ride will have a meeting point where the group will come together for lunch before continuing on to the end of the ride, where you will be met by a bus and taken back to the ship.
  • The rides will be looked after by a tour manager, who is contactable by phone to come and pick you up at any time if required.
