Mountain biking the Great Lake Trail, Lake Taupo, New Zealand is a truly special and lovely journey, and I will guide you over the course of 2-days as we traipse and travail along the trail, riding along the shores of Lake Taupo, admiring the spectacular views from rocky mountain tops, taking in the lush green rainforest and mesmerizing waterfalls and enjoying the different sections of terrain on the trial.

Lake Taupo is located in the Waikato Region on the North Island of New Zealand, and is the largest lake in the country. It is an immensely popular tourist destination, with 2 millions visitors each year, with the Great Lake Trail a particular highlight for outdoor activity enthusiasts.

Our trip begins in the town of Taupo, located on the shores of its namesake lake, and from here we head to the Waihaha Bridge, the starting point of the trail.

Over the course of the 2 days we will see and experience some absolutely magnificent and superb scenery and landscape, with highlights including the exquisite Kotukutuku Waterfall, constant lookout sites and alluring views out over the lake and the nearby volcanoes, acres of lush local rainforest, and a gentle and irresistible finish at the oasis of Whakaipo Bay.

Whilst not incredibly demanding, the trail does contain some tricky bits, so you will have to be alert for these section.

We finish our fun 2-day journey back in Taupo, happy at the stunning sights we have seen and ridden through.

This one of the most pleasant and enjoyable ways to spend a couple of days in Taupo – book now to experience!
