One of the easiest trails in the country to cycle, the Grade 1  Hauraki Rail Trail is regularly enjoyed by kids barely out of trainer wheels, as well as those who’ve been pedalling since the days of Penny Farthings. Located south of Auckland and north of Tauranga, it showcases some of the best scenery in New Zealand. The 160km track is made up of 5 sections, allowing for a range of scenic day rides or comfortable 3-4 day tour rides. From the Shorebird Coast, through lush green Waikato farmlands, to areas rich in pioneering history, the Hauraki Rail Trail is the perfect getaway for a relaxed 2-3 day break.

so it's truly canyoning
"New Zealand style!"


This is truly Canyoning 
New Zealand style
Perhaps the biggest, most exciting and challenging adventure activity in New Zealand. We are located near Thames in the dramatic Kauaeranga valley on the Coromandel Peninsula. It is an adventure of a lifetime and is something unforgettable.
