Mountain Biking in Ivon Wilson Park, Te Anau, Southland New Zealand
The town lies on the eastern side of Te Anau Lake (the second largest lake of New Zealand with more than 400 m/1312 ft depth) and is literally on the border of Fiordland National Park and Te Wahipounamu World Heritage Area, offering a getaway to awe-inspiring landscapes and magnificent sites of wild nature.

It is addressed to bikers of all levels, although there are some technical sections. Highlight of your ride, the beautiful Lake Henry standing inside the park. Enjoy the spectacular views throughout!
