On New Zealand’s North Island, about 225 kilometers to the southeast of Auckland, Rotorua and the Whakarewarewa Forest beckon hikers, outdoor enthusiasts, and especially mountain bikers to its incredible natural display. Its Gold Level status from the International Mountain Biking Association – among other accolades from sports and travel associations – place it in a league of its own as a biking destination.

Complementing the 5,600-hectare area of the Whakarewarewa Forest and 160-kilometer network of world-class single-track and forestry service roads is the pristine New Zealand bush. California Redwoods stand proudly around a plethora of other native and exotic trees, towering above a landscape of varied terrain including volcanic soil.

Gentle rides on rolling tracks for beginners blend together with steep and challenging courses for adrenaline junkies to ensure all levels are welcome.
