Take the hard work out of exploring our slice of mountain biking paradise!
New Zealand is rapidly becoming one of the world's most attractive biking destinations, with access to our incredible countryside growing each season. Gondola assisted riding is rapidly taking the world stage, and one of our greatest achievements has been the development of the New Zealand Cycle Trail.
As keen mountain bikers ourselves, we understand the biggest challenges riders face when they’re planning their New Zealand biking adventure is finding the trails in the first place, then organising their shuttles and return vehicles on one-way rides. So we’ve created your dream biking vacation!
We've designed our ‘Weka’ itinerary so that you can experience the best of New Zealand biking, at your own pace, accompanied by our legendary kiwi guides and you’ll be completely vehicle assisted along the way.
We'll take care of all the logistics, organise hearty home-cooked meals and personally guide you on some of the best trails New Zealand has to offer. We’ve handpicked the absolute best sections of the legendary New Zealand Cycle Trail, and if you’d like to get an adrenaline fix – you can always add on a day of gondola assisted riding in Queenstown!
So if you're keen to see New Zealand at handlebar height whilst enjoying great exercise in our crisp, clean air, then take a look at our ‘Weka’ itinerary below, or request a free brochure and we can help you toward your trip of a lifetime!
The 'Weka' trip is our purpose built, biking adventure. Having said that, there are mountain biking options on most of our New Zealand trips, so get in touch to chat about which trip is going to be the best for you.
Our ‘Weka’ trip combines the very best of New Zealand’s cycling and hiking trails into an action-packed two week adventure. We’re keen bikers here at Active, so we wanted to create the ‘dream itinerary’ for fellow biking enthusiasts! We’ve escaped the traffic by choosing private roads and wide, smooth cycling trails. There’s plenty of flexibility and freedom if you want to ride a little further or a little less, we’ve got you covered! Our new ‘Weka’ trip will suit both road cyclists and mountain bikers alike.
Activity level: The ‘Weka’ is an active cycling and hiking trip, so it’s important that you have a base level of biking and hiking fitness. You don’t have to be young or ready to take on the Tour de France (although if you are super fit and raring to go, you won’t be bored), but you should be in the habit of doing at least some riding and be comfortable in the saddle..
Above all, we aim to be amazing hosts. We're proud of our kiwi roots, and our professional, warm and relaxed style of running trips around the world is unforgettable.
We're VERY picky about who we select to work in our team, and we have people from all over the world lining up to guide our trips. So we get to hire the absolute BEST in the business.
As soon as you get off the plane, we've got all the details of your vacation covered – top notch meals, comfortable transport & accommodation, amazing guides and INCREDIBLE service.
Whether you’re new to adventure travel, or you’ve never travelled in a group before, you’ll find yourself arriving home positively different from when you left.
With our small groups (no more than 14), you'll get to know our team, your fellow travellers, and have the flexibility and freedom to do as much (or as little!) as you like.
It's all about getting there under your own steam – on foot, in a sea kayak, or by bike. What better way is there to experience mind blowing scenery? If it's your first time, no worries – our expert guides have got you covered.
