The Heaphy Mountain Biking Package

 

Ride through expansive tussock downs, lush forests and nīkau palms to the roaring seas of the West Coast. The Heaphy mountain biking adventure is a real backcountry journey.

Created as one of New Zealand’s Great Walks, the track is well formed but overall is classed as a Grade 4 ride.

Reap the rewards of the uphills by appreciating the vastness of Kahurangi National Park and enjoy the awesome downhill section from the tussock downs of the plateau down to the Heaphy River valley. Follow the beautiful Heaphy River crossing swing bridges (and probabaly fending off a few sandflies!) to arrive at the rivers mouth on the wild and pristine West Coast.

Key highlights of this trail are the opportunity to keep and eye out and listen out for the great spotted kiwi, find one of the native nocturnal carnivorous land snails, and soak in the wild sea air of the West Coast.

If you’re thinking of riding with a group of mates or just you and the other half, Adventurers can organize your trip to The Heaphy hassle free.
