Overview

A testing New Zealand cycling day trip that rewards intrepid riders with unbeatable sights, this Wild Coast Remutaka Cycle Cruiser tour from Wellington can be extended if so desired. We transport you over the Remutakas down to Ocean Beach in the Wairarapa (the drive boasts of beautiful scenery along the way) then you hop on your saddle and ride around the coast to Orongorongo.

Seals, dolphins and orca have been spotted in this remarkable part of the country, making this section of the Rimutaka Cycle Trail a real highlight. While truly exhilarating, this part of the trail comes with a challenge and not suitable for all riders. Know what’s ahead of you by reading the trail info first before committing.

Explore the wild south coast. A beautifully rugged and isolated trail, suitable for most adult riders with proper preparation.

Please Note: Ocean Beach to Orongorongo

This section of the trail is very susceptible to changes due to weather, and after storms can become quite rough. Sometimes up to 4km of the trail can become covered in soft sand or shingle - think of it as a combination biking / walking track, and allow extra time to complete this section. It can be tough, but it's worth it - we've seen orca, dolphins, and seals out there, and consider it the most rewarding section of the entire Remutaka Cycle Trail.

Trail Composition

This varies due to exposure to weather, this is an indication:

  • hard packed gravel 75%
  • light sand / gravel mix 5%
  • unrideable sand 10%
  • unrideable scree / shingle 10%
