Trip Information

This 7-night tour is in Northland, which is the top of the North Island, just 3 hour drive from Auckland or a 45 minute flight. The sub-tropical climate of Northland enables cycling all year round. The Cook to Kupe Tour is a fully supported, fully inclusive tour. Everything is organised for you and one of our experienced Tour Leaders will be with you all week, though they do not ride with you – but meet you at different spots and transport your luggage. Our bikes are top quality e-bikes guaranteeing a comfortable and very enjoyable riding experience. With an e-bike you will be surprised at how far you can go. It’s a gentle relaxing tour, however our Tour Leader has options for the riders or walkers who need an extra challenge.

Northland is known as “the birthplace of New Zealand” and our tour immerses you in the rich history and culture of the area. You will visit many of the historic sites that formed the history of NZ. The tour is Cook to Kupe – as in 1769 James Cook came to New Zealand and extensively charted both North and South Island and gave the Bay of Islands its present name. This tour takes you from the East to the West Coast and the mythical Hokianga Harbour, which has a fascinating history of both Maori and European. Hokianga-Nui-A-Kupe means “the place of Kupe’s great return”. Many iwi (Maori tribes) trace their ancestry back to the legendary Polynesian explorer Kupe who, with his crew, voyaged deep into the Southern Ocean to find New Zealand, Northland iwi claim the first landfall of Kupe’s waka was on the shores of the Hokianga Harbour.

The Cook to Kupe tour follows the Pou Herenga Tai - Twin Coast Cycle Trail but goes much further East and West to take in some of Northland’s finest scenery and destinations. It takes you to places that many locals have not even visited with a mixture of biking and hiking.
