Partnering with the NZ Cycle Trail we provide everything from simple shuttles to package tours that include any or all of the following: transport, bike hire, guiding, accommodation, meals, baggage transfers, and even water taxis where applicable. 

We'll help you choose a tour or trail to suit you!

Meandering down Aotearoa's North Island there are amazing cycle trails that have transformed the country's cycling and mountain biking realm. Opening up hundreds of kilometers of beautiful backcountry these trails welcome you to the banks of the biggest rivers, lakes, and depths of amazing native forest. The New Zealand Cycle Trail, also known as "Nga Haerenga" means "the journeys". Our services bring to life the journeys that the trails were designed to offer.

Passionate about exploring the immense natural diversity of our country we've gone from discovering the trails ourselves to devoting our lives to sharing it with others. Whether you book one of our tours, or simply use our website to learn about the cycling and mountain biking trails of the North Island - it's all pleasing to us!

"Cycling is unique. No other sport lets you go like that - where there's only the bike left to hold you up.
If you ran as hard, you'd fall over. Your legs wouldn't support you." ~ Steve Johnson
