The route was created with the following in mind, Is there a gravel option? take it, Can we visit the coast? go on, Can we avoid the main road? Please, If we go down this dead end road, will it be worth it? For sure.
Therefore the course visits the coast line often, passing through rolling farmland and sub alpine tussock country. The Tuatara ensures you will be challenged and delighted at what the deep south has to offer. At times there are large distances between supply points with not many people around – that just happens to be the way things work down here.
Our weather will keep you on your toes, (if you can feel them). Don’t be fooled by the dates into thinking it is still Summer, there isn’t much between Antarctica and the route.
