We have Bikes for everyone. We run Montari Plus 7.1s complete with Hydraulic Disk brakes. This bike is designed for greater grip and stability, paired with a durable lightweight alloy frame. Ride this bike for a load of fun. The grin plastered on your face? Free of charge.

24-inch Montari JR is a mini version of our off-road Montari adult bike. Equipped with powerful disc brakes, Shimano gears and a Suntour suspension fork, the Montari JR is ready to rip on the trails.

20 inch Avanti Tracker Junior. No Child has ever turned down the chance to ride this bad boy. Rough terrain a mere snack for these monster tyres. Even the Dads ask “do you have a bigger version of that for me!”

With options to rent bikes for a full day, half day, or two hours come make the most of what the area has to offer.

As we like to say “Trails end but tales continue…” .. check out this video of the popular Tongariro River Trail ride – a favourite for many of our guests
