Lake 2 Lake Cycle Trail

Explore the Lake 2 Lake Trail by bike with Wild Rides Te Anau.

If you are looking for the ultimate cycling experience in the Te Anau/Fiordland area, look no further than the Lake 2 Lake Trail.

Te Anau is known as the ‘Walking Capital of the World’ for its proximity and easy access to the spectacular Fiordland National Park. The Fiordland’s many trails are ideal for walking, running and exploring. They are also perfect for cycling—particularly the Lake 2 Lake cycle trail. This beautiful, scenic route runs from Lake Te Anau towards Lake Manapouri. The track is brand-new and currently in progress, which means the entire course is not yet complete. However, you can cycle all the way to Manapouri with only a 3.5km bypass around the incomplete trail, part way down the Lake 2 Lake Trail.
