Rotorua Private Tour - Waikato River Trail - Arapuni village to Waipapa Dam to Maraetai Dam: Intermediate
This is our second option along the Waikato River, which offers a more intermediate grade tour. The tour starts at Waotu South Road and and heads along the river to the 80m long Mangarewa suspension bridge which is 42m above the stream below. This provides an exciting introduction to the trails.
From here we will ride along Lake Waipapa, spotting waterfalls and additional natural wonders along the way. The final stages of this trail are an opportunity for you to take advantage of the electric component on our bikes by blasting uphill to meet out shuttle van at the end by Maraetai Dam.
This 36km ride is perfect for riders of intermediate skill level because of the undulating terrain, steep descent shutes, and challenging single track in places. A unique trail to ride due to its variety of natural views, and man-made features such as the Dam's and Quarries.
