mountainhut.nz offers day (2-5hrs) and overnight heli mountain-bike trips. Whakaari means "high place" and that is exactly where you get to quickly with a flight in the B3 helicopter with Bikes on board. After landing at a high peak enjoy the exhilaration of the descent through tussock country and past Scheelite relics and miners huts of old.
Take a guide for easy interpretation or go it alone. Trips are bespoke, 4-5 in a group is ideal. Bring your own bike or we can arrange bike hire and equipment.
Our season runs from 1st November to the 31st of May, Spring to Autumn.
Call us to organize your trip plan and price. Options include an overnight stay at our unique mountain hut at Mt Larkins or a "Hike and Bike".
Track grades are 2-4
