Alps 2 Ocean – Lake Pukaki to Twizel

Alps 2 Ocean – Lake Pukaki to Twizel

Continuing on the Alps 2 Ocean cycle trail from Lake Pukaki, cross the state Highway 8 to the purpose-built trail. Follow the trail across Pukaki Flats – an expansive area of dry big sky grasslands that are characteristic of the Mackenzie landscape.

This takes you to the town of Twizel for an overnight stay with a wide range of accommodation and food options. The following day, the track from Twizel to Ohau mainly follows the hydro canals and edge of Lake Ohau.
