Ride & Seek is thrilled to announce its first foray into the Southern Hemisphere with the only cycling tour on the market traversing the North and South Islands of New Zealand.

In keeping with the company's pioneering 'luxpedition' format, the 24-day, 2000-plus km 'Māori New Zealand Cycling Adventure' leads intrepid travelers on a bold expedition from Auckland to Queenstown, through the thermal wonderland of Rotorua, Tongariro National Park, the land of volcanoes made famous by Lord of the Rings, unspoiled coastlines, and the stunning Southern Alps.

Broken into two stages, Auckland to Wellington and Wellington to Queenstown, the tour is slated for February 6 – March 1, 2021 and starts at NZ$9148 for one stage.
