North Island Trail Hunter MTB Tour

Discover the North Island’s best MTB Trails

Here’s your opportunity to live the dream: a guided MTB adventure holiday across New Zealand’s North Island! We’ll take you to all the sweet spots! Our seven-day North Island MTB package offers some of the finest mountain biking New Zealand has to offer. From the white-knuckle downhills of Rotorua and perfectly flowing single-track of Taupō, to the most scenic of backcountry epics near Ohakune, our expert guides will take you to the meccas of New Zealand mountain biking, as well as the spectacular spots that you've never heard of!

New Zealand’s North Island offers a smorgasbord of landscapes: one day we’ll be riding through a labyrinth of towering ferns and redwoods, the next, we’ll traverse lakeside vistas and a volcanic plateau and soak in geothermal hot springs. Adventure awaits around every corner.

At the end of each day of the itinerary, we’ve included an example of one of our guest's ride statistics for that day – this is just a rough guide, and may include uplifts. You might decide to do more or less riding, it’s always your choice.

Add an extra dose of awesome by including some of our fantastic add-on options such as a MTB Skills Clinic and skydiving.

In the evenings on the tour you’re welcome to relax at the accommodation, rest your legs and soak in the local hot tub(s), cook in, eat out and have a beer.

As the tour starts early in the morning you can opt to stay at our Auckland accommodation the night before the tour – only having to walk downstairs on Day 1 makes for a stress-free morning. Likewise, you can book an extra night in Wellington after your tour ends.
