Alps to Ocean Cycle
Spectacular cycling from Mt Cook down towards the vibrant coastal town of Oamaru
Some 15km west of Lake Tekapo along SH8 is the signposted turn-off to the Mt Cook Salmon Farm . TThe farm, 12km from the turn-off, operates in a hydroelectric canal system; a scenic drive along the canal has popular fishing spots and enjoys great views of Mt Cook. Stop at the farm to feed the fish, or pick up something smoked or fresh for dinner. The sashimi ($15) is the freshest you'll ever have, guaranteed.
