Explore the wonderfully laid-back Hauraki Rail Trail, just an hour’s drive south of Auckland on our 3 day fully supported cycling tour.
From the city, we drive to Kaiaua where our ride begins along the Shorebird Coast, overlooking the Firth of Thames.
The trail traces one of New Zealand’s oldest railway corridors, dating back to 1898, wandering through the Hauraki Plains, before delving into the flinty Karangahake Gorge, strewn with old gold mining relics. A ride through lush Waikato farmland leads us to Matamata and the end of our ride.
Experience the best trailside highlights, including visits to the townships of Paeroa & Te Aroha and an overnight stop at the delightful Waihi Beach.
