The opening of the Great New Zealand Cycle Trail has been eagerly awaited by New Zealanders and tourists alike. Now that many sections of the planned trails are completed and open, this compact guide is both timely and practical. Designed as a companion volume to The New Zealand Cycle Trail: North Island, author Claudia Harfst has also cycled the sections completed to date on the 10 South Island trails and again packed her book with descriptions, useful information, maps, elevations, numerous photographs and great travelling tips -- all the detail you need to help you choose which tracks you'd like to tackle and what to expect along the way. There is also information on accommodation and best places to eat in each region, as well other activities and places to explore while you are there, other than cycle.
