My 16 year old son and I have just finished the Cradle Mountains & Walls of Jerusalem walk and, while driving home, we were reflecting on why it was so rewarding and so much fun.
We expected spectacular scenery and plant life, and they were spectacular. We expected challenging terrain and weather, and they were challenging. We didn't expect such exceptional guides and that is why I am writing to you.
Tim is obviously a very experienced, capable and knowlegeable guide and I probably can't tell you anything you don't already know about him. He is a thorough professional. We always felt safe but challenged. I was impressed with his efforts in finding us interesting things to see and do in the Walls when the weather didn't allow us to visit the usual places. I also thought he handled the stop-over in Mole Creek due to flooding with a good combination of leadership and humour and it turned out to be a trip highlight!
So, the thing is, the environment we visited was every bit as spectacular, challenging and rewar ding as we had hoped for. What made this holiday exceptional was your wonderful guides.My son and I have thanked them, but we wanted to let you know as well.

Travelling along a dedicated Cycle Trail is a great introduction to cycle touring.
Trips are typically shorter, not as demanding and very affordable. You'll encounter many small villages and towns that are otherwise of the usual tourist route.
New Zealand is home to many Cycle Trails thanks to the governments Nga Haerenga project, with the Otago Rail Trail being the most iconic. In fact, it was the success of the Otago Rail Trail, which follows an old, disused railway line, that inspired the NZ government to develop similiar experiences right across the country.
