The Paparoa Track is New Zealand’s newest Great Walk, and the first to be designed as a shared use track for both mountain bikers and walkers. The track crosses the Paparoa mountain ranges between the small ex-mining town of Blackball and the busy tourist village of Punakaiki on the South Island’s West Coast.
The nearest towns to the Paparoa Track are Blackball, Punakaiki and Greymouth. See our shuttle timetable for services running from all these towns. We also provide a car relocation service that can transfer your car to the end of the track while your riding. Our self-guided packages include everything you need to experience the track all year round including; bike hire, accommodation bookings, shuttles and car relocation.
