This was a hard three days but was worth the experience! If you are not experienced, either work out a lot before or only rent it for a few hours. It really was hard on the arms. Other than that, really well made equipment.

After a nice boat trip, we started a 24km mountain bike trail. We got a very good bike and advice. After the track a boat picked us up to go back to Picton.

Excellent guide, lots to look at and see. Blue penguins, spotted shags, seals, stingray, starfish on route. Very tiring but worth it. Good lunch.
