Day 4: Taupō to Ohakune

After yesterday’s rest you will be pumped to ride the beautiful, scenic and undulating terrain of the W2K and Headland Loop – part of the Great Lake Trail around Lake Taupō.

The Great Lake Trail is an epic journey to invigorate your senses. It follows the shores of beautiful Lake Taupō, and takes in the stunning views across the water to the majestic volcanic mountains beyond.

Enjoy extensive native bush, dramatic scenery, serene lake views, powerful waterfalls, beautiful bird song, and some sweet, sweet purpose-built MTB tracks.

Before leaving Taupō we’ll grab some lunch in the township and take a look at the impressive Huka Falls - New Zealand’s most visited tourist attraction.

From here it’s a drive to Ohakune, our final stop for the evening. Ready your cameras - en route we’ll be passing through New Zealand's only desert and some stunning volcanic ranges.
