Starting on the volcanic slopes of Mt Ruapehu, this is an epic journey through two national parks, rolling hill country and remote river gorges. It reaches a fitting finale at the deep, blue Tasman Sea.

The Mountains to Sea Cycle Trail is divided into six sections forming a continuous 199km route, with an unridable stretch of the Whanganui River bridged by a 32km scenic jet boat ride.

Riding the full trail from Ohakune to the Tasman Sea – taking in both Tongariro and Whanganui National Parks – is typically ridden in 4–6 days, but fit riders can complete it in 2–3.

The big Daddy! You'll need to organise accommodation and jet boat transport to ride the whole trail. Give us a call to sort it out.
