It's time we created something for everyone! Ideal for couples, team building, social clubs or like minded groups looking for adventure.

This tour can be taken at anytime throughout the year. Avoid the summer rush and explore in absolute peace!

Day One: Jump on the Coromandel Discovery minibus for a unique tour of the unexplored eastern Coromandel Peninsula with its contrasting coastlines and isolated villages. Discover the magic of Kennedy Bay, Tuateawa and Little Bay. Pause for a coffee at Tangiaro Lodge nestled at the base of a bushclad hillside. Set off on your Coromandel Coastal Walkway hike from Stony Bay, a 10 kilometre scenic journey that travels an old bridle path once used by early Maori and European Settlers. Enjoy lunch at the Lookout with its spectacular views to Great Barrier Island and Beyond. Stroll through a largescale, sheep and beef station located at the tip of the Peninsula with its own private bays and beaches. Your accommodation is a very well appointed self contained DOC Ranchstyle Lodge. Kiwi Kai awaits you to refuel your reserves ready to start the next day.

Day Two: Enjoy a hearty breakfast as the sun rises in the east while your quality Gepida Electric Bike awaits you. Bike the 35 kilometre scenic route around the top of Cape Colville and down the pohutukawa fringed Port Jackson Road. Savour the scenery and experiences. This ride is one of the best and something not to be missed! Regroup at Colville for a bite to eat at the ever popular Hereford N a Pickle Cafe. The last part of the journey has two options:-
