Come with us on a guided mountain bike tour through spectacular scenery in the Tongariro Forest Area, not far from Lake Taupo in the North Island. If you are looking for adventure then this is the trip for you.

The 42 Traverse is a 46km ride that will take you through valleys and around volcanos. You’ll encounter different kinds of terrain, from muddy sections to loose gravel. There are also some pretty intense uphills. But as they say, what goes up must come down.  And you will be able to enjoy some epic downhill stretches!

You will get epic views of the volcanic plateau of the region. You’ll even see some of the mountains from Lord of the Rings!

Due to the sometimes challenging terrain, you’ll need a bit of experience to take on this track. At the very least you’ll need a high level of fitness.

In total, it’ll take us four to six hours to cover the 46 km, and we’ll finish up in Owhango.

Don’t miss your chance to ride this iconic trail in New Zealand. Request to book now!
