Kia Ora and Welcome to Independent Cycle Tours New Zealand
ICTNZ has been set up by cycle tourers, for cycle tourers. We have extensive knowledge of bike touring in the South Island of New Zealand, gained through tens of thousands of kilometers cycling all the routes we recommend.
We have used the knowledge gained to put together these cycle tour routes because we think they offer the best experience of the spectacular scenery and unique culture that the South Island has to offer.
The South Island of New Zealand has an incredible diversity of landscapes to explore and this combined with New Zealand’s friendly and easy-going population and low traffic volumes makes the South Island the worlds best cycling locations for all fitness levels.
One if the the key difference between ICTNZ and other bike tour companies is the quality of the accommodation and friendliness of the hosts. We carefully check all accommodation to ensure the best possible experience for all our customers. We firmly believe the half your holiday experience is made by the friendly local people you meet. Another factor that separates us from the pact is the we will deliver the bike and gear to your accommodation in Christchuch (or a number of other cities around New Zealand). We come to you (including weekends and after hours by arrangement), saving you time and hassle in an unfamiliar city. We believe that it is so important to look after the small details
Our aim is provide you with the service and service and equipment that give you a unique and trouble-free experience in the world’s premier cycle touring destination. Due to repeated request we have now developed a range of supported and guided tours. We look forward to meeting you and showing you around our country.
As experienced cyclists, these are the bikes, equipment and cycling tours we would want to use and do if we were visiting New Zealand.
