Mountain biking is a great way to explore the region on 2 wheels. The Orakau and K2K section of the Great Lake Trail is a great ride through various landscapes from wetlands to native bush.

You’ll meet us at our base in Acacia Bay or in Kinloch where we will set off by vehicle to the start of the Orakau Section of the Great Lake Trail to begin your riding leg. Our ride will finish at Kinloch.

On this ride you will follow the trail down Orakau stream and through flax wetlands, native bush to Kawakawa Bay (beautiful bay on lake edge) – along the way you will see Tongariro National Park. From Kawakawa bay you will start steadily climbing rough native bush to headland which provides great views over Lake Taupo, at headland you will start descending back down into Kinloch.

Some good climbs but short, less challenging for less experienced and less fit riders.

You could also choose to ride just the Orakau leg and have a boat transfer pick you from Kawakawa Bay back to Kinloch.

Additional Boat Transfer charges will apply.
