Aotearoa's most northern Great Ride Pou Herenga Tai Twin Coast Cycle Trail is one of New Zealands's “Great Rides”.
Pou Herenga Tai – Twin Coast Cycle Trail travels from the famously beautiful Bay of Islands to the remote and picturesque Hokianga Harbour, or vice versa. New Zealand’s only coast-to-coast cycle trail
A scenically spectacular cross-country journey with an irresistible mix of relaxing riding with some seriously significant heritage sites and stories.
Glittering coast, a tranquil harbour, wetlands, native forest and rolling farmland can all be enjoyed on this ride across the Far North, which passes through towns rich in Māori & colonial history and manaakitanga (hospitality).
Following a smooth rail trail, cycle paths, wetland boardwalk, suspension bridges and country roads, it can be ridden in either direction or broken into smaller day trips. It is both relaxing and highly rewarding, with opportunities to visit various cultural sites and attractions while enjoying the sub-tropical climate for which the ‘winterless’ north is famous.
The Twin Coast Cycle Trail starts at Opua in the Bay of Islands and finishes at the historic Mangunu Mission House at Horeke in the Hokianga.
