Road Trip Series #3 - Riding the Forgotten Highway

Auckland - Raglan - Waitomo - Mt Taranaki - Whangamomona - Mt Tongariro - Hampton Downs - Auckland

Join us on another of our Mini Road Trip Series, heading south of Auckland on roads less traveled. This time we're headed south to explore the Forgotten World Highway.

This great trip takes us south down the North Island’s west coast through the quaint towns of Raglan & Waitomo, and then onto Mt Taranaki where we’ll ride the Forgotten World Highway to Whangamomona. This stretch of road is a must do for all Kiwi riders and if you haven’t ridden it - you really should. We’ll follow this up by riding from Mt Taranaki to Mt Tongariro and spending a night of luxury at the Chateau. 

If you are keen to do this trip but don't see a date that suits, please email us - hello@openroad.nz

Our aim is to get out & have some fun while trying to help our friends & colleagues in travel & tourism. Together, we can ride this current situation out, let’s do it. 👍
