We depart Nelson early in the morning for a pleasant drive down the Buller Gorge on our way to Lyell where we begin our 18km ascent to Lyell Saddle Hut. Once there, we stop for lunch before we continue the 8km ride up to the tops where we peek through the “Heaven’s Door” to the east, and take in magnificent views over the West Coast. Once we have our fill of the scenery, we head back down to Ghost Lake Hut to stay the night.

Day 2Ghost Road Hut - Seddonville - Nelson54km/7-9 hrs Bike Ride

We start the second day with an exciting descent down several switchbacks to the river valleys below through some stunning back country in between.  We make stops along the way at a handful of lookout points for sweeping views, breaks and lunch.

Then we make the final ride down through the magnificent gorge and out to Seddonville.

We have several options once there:

  • We can choose to stay the night for a trip back to Nelson the next day by road
  • or a 30-minute flight back to Nelson over the awe-inspiring Kahurangi National Park.
