Northland Experiences offers one-of-a-kind bike and hiking excursions that are rich in history, culture, landscape, quirky towns, engaging residents, boutique lodging, and gastronomical pleasures.

With three 5 night, 6 day itineraries to choose from, as well as customised excursions designed just for you, fully supported all-inclusive biking and hiking tours. There’s a lot of luxury and a little bit of rustic! Adventure at its finest with a tour company that goes above and beyond.
Northland is New Zealand’s birthplace. We visit landmark places important to early New Zealand history, such as the award-winning Waitangi Treaty Grounds, where New Zealand’s founding document, Te Tiriti O Waitangi, was signed. Our Cook to Kupe cycling trip honours Captain James Cook, who explored New Zealand, and Kupe, the mythical Polynesian explorer who made the first New Zealand landfall on the beaches of Hokianga Harbour.
Northland is fortunate to have a sizable Maori population, and there are several chances to learn about and engage in local Maori culture. Be enthralled by the stories told on your guided tour following in the footsteps of explorers and our forefathers. The Cook to Kupe cycling trip fills up rapidly during peak season, but the beauty of Northland is that you can bike all year round, and the somewhat warmer weather in winter provides for ideal pedalling. Book today for the Northland bike adventure that will keep you coming back for more. It truly is unrivalled.
A five-night e-bike tour that takes you from the Bay of Islands on the East Coast to Hokianga Harbour on the West Coast.
The cycling tour includes one of New Zealand’s Great Rides, the Pou Herenga Tai Twin Coast Cycle Trail, as well as carefully chosen back roads.
Our tours take you beyond the Twin Coast Cycle Trail to experience more of the Far North – small towns with quirky art galleries, kauri forests, ferry and boat rides, vineyards, more cycling and walking, taking in some of New Zealand’s iconic attractions, as well as wonderful sights and experiences that only locals know about! A nice combination of riding and walking.
The path chronicles the tale of a growing nation by taking you on a fascinating tour through some of New Zealand’s early Maori and European settlements.
The 5-night, 5-day e-bike journey from Kerikeri to the renowned Cape Reinga, New Zealand’s northernmost point, and back is offered by Northland Experiences. The journey includes spectacular sites with stunning panoramas, such as the fabulous 90-mile beach, as well as several culturally significant areas, as well as 450 kilometres of incredible Far North beaches and native forests, with many character-filled encounters in between.
This is an all-inclusive, fully supported tour with an eclectic mix of lodging and local dining. We offer high-quality e-bikes, a luxurious van, and a local tour leader who will always be there to help.
Cyclists may pick how much riding they want to undertake each day, with daily lengths ranging from 20 to 70 kilometres. Some of our journey overlaps with the “Tour Aotearoa,” a world-famous bike packing route that extends 3,000 kilometres from Cape Reinga to Bluff.
The route follows a combination of State Highway (from Cape Reinga to Awanui, as well as a few other short parts) and some less-traveled back country roads, both sealed and unsealed. The Cape Reinga Loop is a really unforgettable Northland experience!
This is an all-inclusive package, so all you have to do is book.
