Three days of peace, serenity and things SPECTACULAR!

Day One: 42kms over quiet gravel country roads, departs Coromandel Town on an anti-clockwise loop around the Northern Coromandel Peninsula. Experience the unique beauty of our regenerating native bush, the rugged eastern coastline and the white spreading sands of Waikawau Bay.  Enjoy your night's stay at a fully catered lodge renown for the dusk and dawn callings of our native kiwi bird.  Add in a massage (extra cost, bookings required) or a spa under the morepork grove to completely immerse yourself in the surroundings.

Day Two: 16kms over quiet gravel country roads and 10kms of the not to be missed, Coromandel Coastal Walkway. The Walkway is a popular, well trodden route, once used by the generations of days gone by.

Much of the Walkway is well formed however there is a 300 metre section to conquer where it is advised you dismount and walk your bike through.  Our bikes have walk assist to help you out.

Spend the night at your isolated Port Jackson accommodation set amongst 5000 acres of dramatic coastal farmland.  Your host will provide traditional Kiwi Fare to compliment your experience.

Day Three: 55kms of quiet gravel and tarseal country roads.  Wind your way back down the rocky coast for spectacular gulf views visiting isolated rural villages and beautiful beaches along the way.  Explore Colville and its art studios, Himalaya Shop and Mahamudra Retreat.  Pause for lunch at Hereford N A Pickle perhaps before starting the final leg of your journey into Coromandel Town.
