It's an early start in Auckland on the first day of the tour as you meet with the group by 7am for breakfast. Afterwards, make your way with bikes on the back as you kick of the first of many rides.

In the evenings on the tour you are welcome to relax at the accommodations, rest your legs and soak in the local hot tub(s). Cook in, eat out, have a beer or even some more night riding... whatever takes your fancy.

The North Island is teeming with great MTB spots. This 7-day tour lets you have a hefty sample of all the wicked trails found only in New Zealand. Try out the gondola-accessed bike park Skyline Rotorua or have a meditative ride along Lake Taupō, the options are endless. Adrenaline junkies can also do other activities while on the road, just make sure to check with the tour operator so the schedule won't clash with riding times.

It won't be all about the bike trails though as there will be a Māori Cultural Experience night which includes a traditional hāngī dinner. This just makes the trip more well-rounded as you not only learn New Zealand's terrain but it's people and traditions too.
