Bike Borland Road. Private Bike Tour
An exclusive day trip deep in the Fiordland National Park. A spectacular day out, fully customized to suit your needs, experience and fitness level.
An epic full day experience with a knowledgeable guide and vehicle support. Biking Borland Road is a trip well known to locals and is every mountain bikers dream day out. What better way to explore a remote area of the Fiordland National Park!
Borland Road was built for the power lines to get through to the Manapouri Hydro Power Station, where over 33% of New Zealand's power is generated. Don't let the power lines put you off though. The power lines themselves are a feat of engineering and the country they run through is seriously impressive. There are plenty of epic views without the power lines and 80% of your biking is far from the lines themselves.
Bike as much or as little as you like. There are grinding climbs, high speed descents, and flatter cruising areas with moderate fitness required. We are able to completely customize this trip to suit anyone from beginners to expert riding levels.
We are also able to cater to groups of mixed abilities, if you have some wanting easy sections and others wanting the more difficult sections. Whatever your level, the scenery will always impress.
Stop at your favourite lookout for lunch, have a swim at the south arm of Lake Manapouri and take a rest in the shade of the mossy native Fiordland Beech forest.
