There were plenty of reasons NOT to go on an epic bike trip to New Zealand – worries about time, money, leaving the kids. My fretful mind considered all possible negative outcomes. In the end, we jumped on the bikes, let go of the handlebars and took that beautiful ride. No regrets (and thankfully, no problems) – only spectacular sights, active adventures, great company and lots of great food! It was a true trip of a lifetime!

So what exactly were we up to these past few weeks? After a quick pit-stop in Fiji, my husband and I joined about 20 other people for a 12-day bike tour through New Zealand’s South Island with Great Bike Tours. We pedaled (or peedled as the New Zealanders say) a lot of miles but what I really loved about Great Bike Tours is that there were so many other active things to do on the trip – hikes, beach walks, boat trips, train rides and much more (read more about the tour itinerary here).

If you love active vacations and New Zealand is on your bucket list, here are 10 reasons to make it happen by bicycle!
