Welcome to Nga Haerenga - the New Zealand Cycle Trail

The NZ Cycle Trail is a nationwide network of cycle tracks, each offering something distinct. Beginners and families will enjoy meandering along a wide, flat trail and admiring the views, expert riders will revel in the steep tracks and adrenalin-pumping twists and turns that other bike trails offer, while nature lovers will appreciate the isolation of the more remote trails.

It's not just the cycle rides themselves that provide the appeal. Along every route there are opportunities to stop and explore - you'll find breath-taking scenery not accessible by any other means, mingle with locals in remote townships and discover intriguing examples of New Zealand culture and heritage. The townships along the trails are guaranteed to give you a warm welcome and offer a chance to jump off the bike and relax for a while.

Many of the trails are well serviced by tourism operators with bike hire, accommodation and connecting transport available.
