Rotorua is a fantastic place to visit and with no shortage of activities there is bound to be something to suit everyone. If you’re into cycling, there are a number of great winter bike trails to try out. From the leisurely to the expert grade these are a great activity in the winter. We have some of our favorites below:
This is a leisurely trail; it is a mostly flat, smooth ride with some gentle climbs. It is an iconic Whakarewewa trail and is ideal for inexperienced riders or a family day out. Dress warm and take in the amazing views.
Rainbow Mountain Loop
There are a series of trails for difference levels of riders. The tracks all meet up and you can even walk some of them to take in the spectacular native bush. The track leads you to Kerosene Creek for a naturally warm swim. A great end to a winter bike trail.
Tuhoto Arkiki Trail
This one is specifically designed as a dual track. It’s for the advanced rider. Work up a sweet while you cycle through native bush; the trail starts at the top of the Whakarewarewa forest at 765m. You can catch a shuttle to the top or bike up if you have the energy!
This is only for the expert riders. It’s a technical trail that can be challenging for riders. The track descends a total of 160m and is 1km long. Give it a go if you dare!
