Mountain Biking in Taupo and surrounding areas

Over 100km of mountain bike tracks and more to come.

One of the advantages of staying in the Taupo region is the myriad of mountain bike tracks available within a short cycling distance to the resort. From the back of your unit your can jump on your treadlie and hit the tracks around Taupo. If it’s full on mountain biking you crave, then it is two kilometres along the resort track to Wairakei MTB Park. Here you’ll find 50 kilometres of single tracks from grades two to six. Or the other way is an easy lope ride around Aratiatia over Huka Falls and back to our Taupo resort for a coffee and a swim.

We have even recently opened a new track with assistance from Bike Taupo that meanders through the resort grounds and will eventually continue on to Aratiatia rapids.

The resort track is sign posted from the back of Fairways Cafe. The track runs alongside the road past the Honey centre and leads into the back of our Taupo hotel and then around beside the hot water stream and back to Fairways Cafe. It will allow people to ride from the resort up to the craters of the moon and more. The track heads up to the intersection on the tunnel track to access this extensive track system.

Our fantastic men from Bike Taupo will sign post the route around Aratiatia soon and also keep a bike track open all the way all year round. This area is part of the Huka race route, and a nice easy ride around the lake and up the other side. We are happy if you want to use the car park at the resort.

Grab a current MTB map before you arrive and discover beyond our boundaries of the resort with tacks heading in all directions, including our close location to the famed 'craters o the moon area.'

After a thrilling day of mountain biking in Taupo, come back to base, where we've got the space so you can wash your bike in our bike wash area.
