Itinerary

Day One - The Hutt River Trail - 35km (42km if starting at Days Bay)

Start your adventure with either a 9am shuttle from Wellington to the official start point of the trail at Petone, or a scenic cruise across Wellington Harbour (flexible timing) to the alternative start point at our base in Days Bay. We'll have your bikes ready and waiting, and will give you a quick briefing on what to expect for the day. Jump on your bikes and follow a meandering road around the harbour edge to the start of the Hutt River Trail. Ride the riverside trail through the Hutt Valley - we'll be waiting at several strategic locations with food and drink stops - to Maymorn, where your luggage and accommodation awaits. We'll then get you set up for the evening with a delicious meal and a cold drink, then you can settle in for the night in a relaxed country environment. Accommodation for the first night will be at Arorangi Country Homestay - a beautiful bed and breakfast nestled in heart of the Upper Hutt countryside providing a relaxing atmosphere and comfortable beds, perfect after a day out on the trail!


Day Two - The Remutaka Rail Trail - 52km

Enjoy a lazy breakfast, where your host will check in with you regarding the plan for the day, before you saddle up for a ride through the Pakuratahi Forest and on to the Remutaka Rail Trail (after a coffee stop of course!). You'll follow an historic rail line up a gentle incline, passing through tunnels (headlights provided!) and over bridges, while checking out information boards detailing the enormous task of constructing the old fell railway system. Reach the summit - a large grassy plateau perfect for your picnic lunch - then enjoy a fun (but easily controllable!) descent to Cross Creek in the Wairarapa, surrounded by some of NZ's most scenic farmland. We'll check in with you for a coffee break, before you continue your journey along a quiet country road to your accommodation at Te Rakau Cabins, converted railway wagons in a rustic rural setting, with your luggage and all the other comforts you could want. We'll fire up the BBQ and cook you a delicious meal, while you enjoy a glass of wine and the outdoor wetback "spa-bath". 


Day Three - The Wild Coast - 27km (48km if finishing at Days Bay)

Wake up to the sound of local birdlife, grab some breakfast then hit the road down to Ocean Beach (where we'll have a coffee break waiting) and on to Orongorongo (and Days Bay if desired!). This part of the trail is stunning - we've seen orca, dolphins and seals from the trail, and it really is an incredible part of the country. Though beautiful and one of the highlights of the Remutaka Cycle Trail, the coastal track is also quite rugged and may be a challenge for some riders. Next stop after Ocean Beach is Orongorongo, where the van will be ready and waiting with coffee and snacks. At this point you can either carry on through to Days Bay under your own steam, or jump in the shuttle for an easier shortcut. Once in Days Bay, you can relax by the beach with gelato or a coffee (or something a bit stronger) before finishing the adventure with a cruise back to Wellington or a lift in our shuttle. Our default finish time for the tour is 5:30pm, but we are happy to discuss alternatives if this doesn't suit.

Important notes:


  • Please note that all accommodation is dependent upon availability. If these options are not available we will discuss this with you at the time of booking.
  • Pricing is based on twinshare accommodation - solo cycle tourists or those wanting a room to themselves, may result in a surcharge of $100 / day (we'll discuss this with you at time of booking).
