Overview

Experience a relaxed 2-3 hours ride on a mountain bike, and three hours paddling on the pristine waters of Lake Taupo, New Zealand, all in one day on our Explorer Package: Kayaking & Mountain Biking Combo.

Starting out west of Taupo, we set off from Whakaipo Bay on a Grade 1 – 3 track towards Kinloch Bay passing over the headland. Or we can follow an alternative headland loop where the ride follows the coast and the views are just as spectacular. There’s also a shorter route over the hill that will take you to a lookout where the southern end of the lake comes into full view. Stop here for a well-deserved rest before an easy ride back down to Kinloch Bay.

On your descent, expect to pedal through tracks thick with bush as you look down to the glistening lake below.

We stop for lunch in Kinloch Bay, then begin anew as we kayak around the headland on our way to Whakaipo Bay. Size up the steep bush-clad cliff walls that plunge into the lake, and marvel at the volcanic rocks that come out of Lake Taupo’s pristine blue waters.

At Whakaipo Bay, you will be served gourmet afternoon tea before going back to Taupo by road.

Let us know which option suits you best as there several to choose from on this trip. We are more than glad to arrange a trip that perfectly fits your requirements.
