Tour Overview

This Tour has been cancelled due to Covid - new tour dates for 2021 are now open for bookings

The name tells you this is something special, and it is: 12 days of the finest riding New Zealand’s North Island has to offer, and some of the very best in the world. You'll ride the twisting roads of the Coromandel coast and ranges, the remote wind-swept East Cape, and explore the majestic mountains of Tongariro and Mt Taranaki National Parks. This epic tour takes in the spectacular lakeside roads of the Blue Lakes District, the world’s greatest collection of Art Deco buildings in Napier and sampling the fantastic wines of Hawkes Bay. Keen riders will find the route around East Cape unforgettable, and the stunning ride across the Ruahine Ranges to The Forgotten Highway is the bucket list dream you didn’t even know you had. Why is it forgotten? You'll have to ride it to find out.
