Day 1: Auckland to Rotorua

Kia ora, and welcome to New Zealand, where you’ll find some of the best mountain biking in the world!

We kick things off early, meeting at 7am in the lounge of our Auckland accommodation, where your guide will have set up continental breakfast. Over breakfast your guide will introduce everyone to the group and run through everything you need to know to maximise your time in New Zealand!

When we're ready to go, we leave the hustle and bustle of Auckland behind us and head to Rotorua for some top-quality riding in the Whakarewarewa forest. With over 160 kilometres of trails, you’ll get a taste of what is to come for the rest of our time in this world famous corner of New Zealand.

Afterwards, head into town for the feed of your choice before settling down for the first of our two nights in Rotorua.
