The bike track along Upper Clutha from Albert town takes you past crystal clear water, rapids and also provides stunning views of the mountains.

A local favorite! We cut out the hassle and supply your transport, to the start,  bike hire, and of course up-to-date instructions! It is the combination of the scenery and terrain which makes this the perfect ride for all abilities.
