Overview

Perfect for riders of all levels, this flagship cycling day trip of New Zealand's Remutaka Cycle Trail takes you to the rich rail history and natural beauty of North Island's Remutaka Ranges. The Remutaka Rail Trail Explorer Cycle trip can be shortened or extended depending on your desires. You can choose from either 18km or 25km of easy to moderate riding.

We drive you to either Maymorn (if you are keen for a 25km, slightly more difficult ride) or Kaitoke (for a relaxed 18km ride) where you set off with a gentle incline through native bush. Enjoy cycling through tunnels (headlights supplied) and over bridges, and pause at information boards to learn more about the enormous task of building the old Fell railway system.

Arriving at the summit, you may want to take a break for a cold drink or picnic in the large grassy plateau before going down to Cross Creek in the Wairarapa, enjoying the thrill of easily controllable descent and the views of scenic farmland surrounding it. You can choose to wait for the shuttle at Cross Creek, or continue ahead to Ocean Beach where we will pick you up along the way for the return trip to Wellington.
