Te Anau is a small town, situated in Fiordland region, in the South Island of 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. An attraction of the area is Te Anau Glowworm Caves. It is a system of caves not fully formed (only 12,000 years old), home to thousands of glowworms.

Te Anau has a lot to offer to mountain biking lovers with a great variety of routes and trails. One of the most beautiful routes is the Upukerora Track (8 km/4 mi) which runs along Te Anau Lake and gets up to Upukerora River. Enjoy the spectacular view of the Murchison Mountains. Immerse yourself in the cycling adventure, feel the thrill of your personal effort and discover the rare and wild beauty of this scenic track.

Note: Bikers have the option to return to Te Anau via Milford Highway Road when they reach the river.
