GUIDED BIKING PACKAGES
A Guided Bike Tour around the stunning bays of Lake Taupo is a great way to enjoy the outdoors- the perfect activity for a couple or family over the holidays. You will be transferred to and from your local accommodation by 4WD vehicles to the start of the ride and will be riding on late model front suspension bikes. Helmets and bottles of water are also included. Our guides are full of local knowledge of the flora and fauna
The following tours are designed to suit the novice rider who would just enjoy a leisurely ride, through to the more competent rider that doesn't mind the odd hill or two. Although not listed we have rides for more experienced cyclists and these can be tailored to suit your expectations and ability.
What you need to bring: Sunglasses, sunscreen, jacket, appropriate footwear and clothing. Depending on your chosen trail, you might like to bring a bathing costume too.
