NZ MTB Dreamer Tour

Discover New Zealand’s Best MTB Trails

Prepare yourself for your most epic mountain biking adventure yet! This is your opportunity to live the dream: a guided MTB adventure holiday across New Zealand.

The best of the North. The best of the South. They both come together over an epic 16 days to create the ultimate adventure: the pinnacle of mountain biking in New Zealand – some say, the world!

Take in the lush forests and epic, adventurous trails of the North Island, and complement it with the high country tracks and purpose built parks of the South Island.

Add an extra dose of awesome by including some of our fantastic add-on options such as Heli-Biking, MTB Skills Clinics, bungy and skydiving to name a few.

From perfectly flowing single-track of Taupō, to the the white-knuckle rock rollers of Alexandra, not forgetting the purpose-built parks of Queenstown and Rotorua, 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!

The 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.

By the time you hit the South Island, you’ll have found your flow and form and you’ll be amped to tackle the alpine tracks and trails! But no two mountains or MTB parks are the same: one day we’ll be riding through tussocky backcountry, the next, we’ll ascend via gondola, the next we’ll take on lakeside vistas and craggy alpine pioneer tracks. You’ll conquer mountains and your own limits!

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, have a beer or even some more night riding.

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.

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 at the Queenstown accommodation on day 16 to enjoy even more of Queenstown.

As you build your tour online, you’ll see a few optional activities available to add – remember, none of these are compulsory. Not sure which activities to choose? No problem. Once you’ve paid a deposit and secured your seat you can add activities anytime until 45 days prior to departure.

Your Haka MTB Guide can also book activities for you while on the road. We can't guarantee availability when booking at the last minute, so if you have some must-do activities, pre-booking is a great idea. We try to fit these activities around our riding but some additional activities may clash with riding times – check with us if you're unsure.

Accommodation on tour is dorm-share, but if you like your own space you can upgrade your accommodation to a private room.
