Coast to Coast adventure tour

For all potential Coast-to-Coast venturers and anyone who is fascinated by the people who undertake such an adventure, this is an opportunity to enjoy a great journey that can be undertaken at a more leisurely pace over a few days.

A Typical Coast to Coast Journey Consists Of:

Day 1: Starting in Christchurch we drive over Arthurs Pass to the West Coast to spend the night.

Day 2: Depart from Kumara Beach for a 68km, 3-4 hour bike ride to the start of the Deception Valley and start the walk towards Goat Pass and evening camp.

Day 3: Continue the journey with a 4-5 hour hike over the Pass and down in to the Minga Valley to the Arthurs Pass highway. Once here a leisurely bike ride brings you to your night’s accommodation.

Day 4: A morning bike ride to Mt White Bridge which is where we put-in for a 4-5 hour rafting journey on the Waimakariri River (Grade 2) and set up camp at the end of the day.

Day 4: A full morning of rafting before taking out at the Waimak River Bridge, followed by a bike ride to Woodend Beach completing your Coast-to-Coast Journey.
