    Starts: Auckland

    Finishes: Rotorua

     

    Auckland and Rotorua are fantastic cities to spend a couple of days before and after the tour. In between, we will visit the delightful towns of Cambridge, Taupo and Napier. From these bases, you will enjoy scenic rides on quiet country roads taking in rolling farmland, glittering lakes, volcanic fields, vineyards and coastal vistas. Both longer and more moderate rides have been developed for each day to cater for all riding levels. We stay multiple nights in Cambridge and Napier, allowing time to also enjoy some of the many activities and attractions. On offer are 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.
