Mountain-Bike & Cycle New Zealand

Few countries in the world offer as much variety or as many cycling and mountain-bike challenges as New Zealand. From short one-day forest trails to the multi-day Otago Rail Trail, there's something for everyone, no matter how fit or experienced. So we've decided to dedicate the next few weeks to sharing some of these opportunities, starting with the fantastic 'Mountain to Sea' adventure cycle.

This video features one of New Zealand's most exciting cycling experiences, the 130 mile long 'Mountain to Sea Cycle Trail' starting in the high plateau of the North Island's Tongariro National Park and finishing at the Tasman Sea, near the coastal town of Whanganui. 

On the way you traverses the alpine majesty of Mt Ruapehu, historic trails, tranquil indigenous forest, two National Parks and the legendary 'Bridge to Nowhere' - Jet boating or kayaking options are available for part of this journey on the remote and beautiful Whanganui River.

Our New Zealand operator can arrange for riders to do the complete trail, or just shorter portions according to your fitness levels. Everything, from van transportation, equipment, meals, accommodation and tour guide is expertly taken care of. If you want to know more just email us here

Meanwhile, be inspired by this video of the 'Mountain to Sea Cycle Trail' - it looks best on a full size monitor.

Next week we'll have a blog entry from a keen New Zealand women cyclist, with tips about how to get the most out of a New Zealand cycling vacation.
