The Lake Taupo region is home to a range of custom-made mountain biking tracks, located in some of the country's most stunning native forest parks.
Lake Taupo's mountain biking trails are some of the best in the world, ranging from gentle to heart-pumping. You'll follow native bush, riding past rivers, mountains and Lake Taupo itself. Guided tours can take you to secret local spots - adrenaline junkies can try heli-biking, where you'll be helicoptered to the top of a volcano before experiencing one of the most epic downhills of your life. For the sedate biker, undulating trails through pine forest make for a more relaxing experience.
