Overview

Discover the Remutaka Ranges' rich rail history & natural beauty. The flagship daytrip of the Remutaka Cycle Trail in New Zealand, this Remutaka Rail Trail Explorer Mountain Bike Shore Excursion is suitable for riders of all levels, and can be lengthened or shortened to suit you. 18/25km of easy/moderate riding.

We meet you at port at the time of your choosing, and shuttle you up to either Maymorn (for a 25km, slightly more challenging ride) or Kaitoke (for an 18km easy ride), where you start your adventure with a very gradual incline through native bush. Pass through tunnels (headlights provided!) and over bridges, while checking out information boards detailing the enormous task of constructing the old fell railway system. Reach the summit - a large grassy plateau perfect for a picnic or cold drink - then enjoy a fun (but easily controllable!) descent to Cross Creek in the Wairarapa, surrounded by some of NZ's most scenic farmland. Meet the shuttle at Cross Creek, or continue biking north to Featherston and The Fell Locomotive Museum, and we'll pick you up along the way before driving you back to your ship.
