C2K TOUR

This 5-night tour starts on Sunday evening in Kerikeri and finishes in Paihia or Russell the following Friday morning. It follows Pou Herenga Tai -The Twin Coast Cycle Trail but goes much further East and West to take in some of Northlands finest scenery and destinations. A mixture of biking and hiking.

This is a fully supported, fully inclusive tour. Everything is organised for you and one of our experienced Tour Leaders will be with you all week. Our tour has been designed for all abilities with a mixture of dedicated cycle trails, gravel roads and quiet tar seal roads for the cycling. The stunning hikes are either on dedicated walkways, including parts of Te Araroa, or on the rugged, wild, west coast.

Our bikes are top quality E-bikes guaranteeing a comfortable and very enjoyable riding experience. However, if you want to bring your own bike or want to do the tour on a traditional mountain bike that’s no problem. We hope to cater for all abilities. It’s a gentle relaxing tour. Each day the riding distances never exceed 52k however our Tour Leader has options for the riders or walkers who need that extra challenge.

Northland is known as “the birthplace of New Zealand” and our tour immerses you in the rich history and culture of the area.

You will visit many of the historic sites that formed the history of NZ such as the Waitangi Treaty Grounds – where the treaty that made New Zealand a British colony was signed. The tour is Cook 2 Kupe – as in 1769 James Cook came to New Zealand and extensively charted both North and South Island and gave the Bay of Islands its present name. This tour takes you across from East to West Coast to the mythical Hokianga Harbour – which has a fascinating history of both Maori and European. Hokianga-Nui-A-Kupe means “the place of Kupe’s great return”. Many iwi (Maori tribes) trace their ancestry back to the legendary Polynesian explorer Kupe who, with his crew, voyaged deep into the Southern Ocean to find New Zealand and Northland iwi claim the first landfall of Kupe’s waka was on the shores of the Hokianga Harbour.

Northland has a strong Māori population you’ll find plenty of opportunities to learn about and experience this local culture and discover our rich heritage. The stories are captivating as you tread in the footsteps of our ancestors and explorers.

We deliberately keep our tours small in number limiting them to 10 people maximum. Our transport is a luxurious 15-seater minibus.
