This 2-day E Biking wilderness adventure in Tongariro is not your standard mountain bike tour.
Traverse spectacular terrain on private land in the Central North Island, with views spanning back towards the UNESCO Dual World Heritage Tongariro National Park.
Watch this video to see what it’s all about!
This trip is suitable for everyone with intermediate or above riding experience and enthusiasm and we can arrange E Bike hire should you not have your own.
Located near our meeting point in Turangi, it doesn’t take long to arrive at this breathtaking and isolated property.
Day 1 – 40kms: Rolling Hills, Untouched Wilderness
As we drive into the property, keep your eyes out for the deer that are all around, playing in the forest. Here, you will also get the first taste of what is in store for you over the next two days. The rolling hills, diverse landscape, and true untouched wilderness.
With a quick warm up to get started, you will soon be grateful for the assistance from the e-bike as you take off and tackle the hills.
The tracks we ride are the old logging tracks, developed many decades ago, but untouched for years now. These are not purpose-built tracks – you will have a mixture of gravel, dirt, grass with a healthy mix of uphills and downhills. Each track tells a story, and this is adventure riding at its best!
A fully catered lunch in the middle of your ride overlooking the stunning landscape of the central North Island will help refuel you for your afternoon ride. On a clear day, you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views over the volcanic plateau.
After your morning warm up, you get into the more advanced terrain after lunch – you will face steep uphills, twisting and turning downhills, and even a river or two to cross. Luckily, it is nothing the eBikes can’t handle with ease.
Before you know it, you’ll be riding through the gate of the lodge, signalling the end of your ride for the day.
Relax in your private lodge
This private, off-the-grid lodge and it is exclusively yours when you book a wilderness experience with us.
Well appointed bedrooms offer you privacy away from your group and a shared living area, kitchen, dining room enable you all to enjoy each other’s company. A large deck with plenty of seating offers a space for you to simply relax, disconnect and take in the stunning scenery and sunsets.
Overlooking a giant ravine, you’ll only hear the sounds of a running river and animals frolicking, as well as your laughter and chatter as you celebrate a day well spent with a refreshing beverage and delicious catered meals.
Bikes will be recharged overnight for the next days’ adventure.
Day 2 – 17km: Round out the weekend
Day 2 is a shorter 17km ride to round out the weekend and complete the wilderness tracks. Our van will meet you at the end to transfer you back to the meeting point and finish the adventure.
Tailor Your Adventure
As this is a private and exclusive trip for you and your mates, we are more than happy to adapt it to suit your needs. Your group can also participate in deer hunting, or feeding or perhaps a guided walk around parts of this 10,000 acre setting – ask us about the options. Many of our guests love to add a thrilling white water rafting experience on the Tongariro River to round off their break.
