About this itinerary

Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride

Family Biking Together


The freedom of travelling by motorhome can get you closer to nature. For some, that will mean parking up by the beach every night. For others, it’ll mean spending time in the mountains on hiking tracks. For you, it could involve two wheels — on a bicycle.

Our bike trails road trip itinerary will help you plan a bike holiday that features the most incredible riding trails in the North Island. Between Northland and Wellington, you’ll find trails constructed especially for biking — and scenery that ranges from spectacular to extraordinary.

Take your pick of the best bike trails in the north, or sample a short section of each while on your motorhome or campervan holiday.
