Silver Fern: a New Zealand road trip

11 nights & 12 days. What can be packed into this limited time? In the country of New Zealand as it turns out, a whole lot. This new trip promises to ride a good chunk of NZ, undoubtedly one of the planet's most beautiful places. From the rugged, high snowy peaks of the Southern Alps, to the Canterbury Plains and seaside singletrack near Christchurch, to beautiful Nelson, then over to the capital Wellington and it's rolling green hills, to Lake Taupo's geothermal landscape of volcanos, to Rotorua's vibrant Maori culture and lush old-growth singletrack and finally into Auckland for final night festivities and the flight home. A road trip from one end to the other, are you in? It's XC with a little all-mountain sprinkled in and in the heart of the southern summertime. Silver Fern, come join us next March!
