This ‘Disneyland’ of mountain-biking - regarded as having some of the finest trails in the world - is only an hour away in Rotorua. The tracks weave under towering forest canopies of redwood, radiata pine and douglas fir.
There are well-signposted trails to suit all levels of ability, from beginners to experts who want extreme riding. The Redwoods is a place where the whole family can enjoy a ride in the forest together. The trails run through Whakarewarewa Forest, just 10 minutes drive from the centre of Rotorua.
