Ride around the north-western shores of Lake Taupō on the Great Lake Trail.
An 83km, one- to three-day grade three ride, the Great Lake Trail forms part of the Ngā Haerenga New Zealand Cycle Trail.
Taking in a range of diverse landscapes, the Great Lake Trail includes wetlands and waterfalls, beaches, gorges, headlands, bridges and of course vistas of New Zealand’s largest lake.
Tackle the trail one multi-day trip, or it can be split into shorter sections to suit your cycling skills.
Experienced riders will enjoy the exhilarating downhills, switchbacks and cambered berms, while the easier sections allow you to soak up the unusual rock formations and unique volcanic scenery.
