Enjoy the freedom of riding without the hassle of logistics by taking a guided or self-guided mountain bike tour.

A host of passionate cycle tour operators offer trips ranging from half-day self-guided rides through to fully guided multi-day adventures.

Cycle tour operators make it easy to make the most of the trails by taking care of bike hire, transport, luggage transfers and other logistics, offer fascinating local insight and the company of fellow cyclists. Great food and accommodation make  trips even more memorable.

National tour operators such as Adventure South NZ, Adventurers Travel Company offer fully inclusive tours, combining major trails with other exciting outdoor activities such as hiking and kayaking.

Fully inclusive independent and guided mountain biking tours are offered by regional tour operators throughout New Zealand. Popular mountain biking hubs such as Rotorua, Nelson Tasman and Wānaka have several companies to choose from, each offering a range of single day and multi-day packages as well as basic services such as bike hire and transport.

In smaller towns and villages, outdoor shops and shuttle companies often double as local tour operators.
