The tour starts in Auckland and finishes in Wellington, both fantastic cities to spend a couple of days before and after the tour. In between, we will visit the delightful towns of Cambridge, Taupo, Napier and Martinborough and from these bases scenic rides on quiet country roads have been scoped taking in rolling farmland, glittering lakes, volcanic fields, vineyards and coastal vistas. Both longer and more moderate rides have been developed for each day so all riding levels are catered for. We stay multiple nights in Cambridge and Napier, allowing time to also enjoy some of the many activities and attractions on offer including tours to thoroughbred horse studs or award winning wineries, visits to Hobbiton, a significant location used for The Lord of the Rings film trilogy and The Hobbit film series, Sanctuary Mountain, the largest ecological restoration project in New Zealand or to the world’s largest mainland gannet colony.
