Mountain biking in Lake Taupo

Taupo's volcanic lake and forested surrounds are a stunning setting for some of New Zealand's best and fabulously free-draining trails.

Trails and bike parks in and around Lake Taupo

The Lake Taupo region, an IMBA Silver Ride Centre, is home to an impressive range of mountain biking trails. Here, mountain biking is a great year-round activity – the trails are always rideable and stay relatively dry, even in mid-winter due to the free-draining pumice soil found here. The region was accredited by the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) as a silver level ride centre, which means that it is home to large-scale mountain biking facilities that offer something for all riders.

The region is a cycle-friendly destination featuring a part of the New Zealand Cycle Trail. Exploring its many trails is a great way to take in the native forests, volcanic mountains, clear rivers and picturesque Lake Taupo itself - the largest lake in New Zealand.
