Tour Code: SS002

A seven day tour exploring the world-renowned trails of New Zealand’s North Island. This tour focuses on the ‘hidden gems’ and makes the most of our expert local knowledge. The most popular bike parks are included and several optional days can be added.


World Class singletrack. Native Forest trails. Cultural Activities

Tour Detail

This tour explores the best off-road riding that the North Island has to offer. It takes in the famous mountain biking meccas of Rotorua’s Whakarewarewa Forest and Taupo’s Craters of the Moon as well as some of the best off-the-beaten-track routes.

The riding varies from purpose-built bike parks to technical hiking trails and back-country singletrack. The trails have been selected to suit riders with intermediate to advanced mountain bike experience, however easier options are available on most days. A highlight is a visit to Whirinaki forest, one of the best all-day wilderness bike trails in New Zealand. No MTB tour of New Zealand is complete without sampling  the trails of Rotorua’s Whakarewarewa forest and plenty of time is allocated for this.

As the tour passes through many of our tourist hot-spots, you have the chance to take in some cultural experiences along the way. Three optional days can be included if you want to keep the fun going for even longer!

We recommend renting a rental car or campervan for the duration of the tour. We can arrange cars and vans with bike racks fitted, just let us know what size you need!

This tour is in the final stages of development, so contact us for more information or with any specific requests!
