Stay and Cycle

Cycling through and around Tairua can be as easy or as hard as you would like to make it.  Cycle to the beach, along the estuary or up to Mt Paku.  Bring your own bike or hire a bike from Sunlover Retreat.  We include helmet and lock for your bike.

Then there is the Hauraki Rail Trail.  The Hauraki Rail Trail is the easiest riding Trail in New Zealand, with various stages allowing for comfortable 3 day Rail Trail cycle rides. The closest trail starts in Thames – a 40 minute car journey to get to the start. The temperate climate on the Coromandel Peninsula and the Hauraki Plains provides a great all-year round riding experience.

The 82km trail is the easiest cycle trail in New Zealand to ride with the longest tunnel 1.1Km and showcases some of the best scenery New Zealand has to offer, from the Pohutukawa trees on the Thames Coast, through lush green Waikato farm lands, to areas rich in pioneering history. A major highlight includes riding through the stunning Karangahake Gorge, one of the “14 wonders of New Zealand”. The trail follows the path of two historic railway lines, running from Thames to Paeroa and Waikino to Te Aroha, while a new path will link Waikino to Waihi.

The Cycle Package is for two and is subject to availabilty.  Please check availability by visiting our bookingspage.  This package includes bike, helmet, lock for your bike and a night’s accommodation with breakfast to set you up for the day.  A picnic lunch can be supplied by request.
