The Paparoa track on the West Coast of the South Island is New Zealand’s latest ‘Great Walk’ to be formed as a shared walking and mountain biking track.
If an uphill climb for over 2 hours is not your thing or your ability to bike uphill is limited. The helicopter allows you the opportunity to experience a less strenuous start to your journey.
Our purpose built bike racks are designed to help protect expensive bikes in a vertical frame. Cost effective travel with bikes and passengers flying together in one load. Hop out of helicopter, hop on your bike and your adventure begins.
A heli bike lift from Greymouth to Ces Clark Hut will allow you to cut out 800-1000m vertical climb, about 10-15km.
The track is achievable in 1 day for experienced mountain bikers with a heli lift to Ces Clark Hut.
The 56.2 km track is maintained to an advanced Grade 4 mountain biking standard.
A myriad biking adventure through alpine tops, limestone karst landscapes and thriving rainforests.
Experience stunning views by helicopter of the West Coast of the Southern Alps on your flight.
Depending on your departure point, on a good day you will see views of Aoraki Mount Cook.
Experience the beautiful remote West Coast scenery at your leisurely pace on your bike
