Experience the best bits of the Twin Coast Cycle Trail over 2 days, a shorter experience than our Full Trail - 2 Day option. Our self guided trips included all required pick up and drop off shuttles and bike hire for the 2 days. The Twin Coast cycle Trail is predominantly off the main road, an easy gradient and achievable by most levels of fitness so great for all ages and abilities.

Day 1 - 22km: Experience one of the best parts of the Twin Coast Cycle Trail from Opua to Kawakawa! Shuttle collects you from Paihia (08:30 , 10:30 or 13:00) ready with your bikes and drops you at the nearby Port town of Opua. Follow the old railway tracks, a flat and very scenic trail from Opua to Kawakawa passing through tunnels, rail bridges and historic towns. Check out the famous Huntertwasser Toilets, Vintage Railway and steam-train running right through the main street in town. After lunch, retrace your tracks and follow the meandering Kawakawa River back to the seaside town of Opua. Our shuttle will be waiting to collect you and your bikes taking you back to Paihia or your accommodation (pick up time dependent on departure time).

Day 2 - 30km: Our shuttle leaves Paihia (08:30) this time heading for Okaihau where you will be riding in the opposite direction to get the best of the downhill trail gradient! all the way to the West Coast and the untouched Hokianga Harbour. Your ride will start by riding through Okaihau a fantastic small town of New Zealand, a good place to stock up on trail snacks. Carry on down through the beautiful Utakura Vally, following streams past untouched rural New Zealand farmland. Finish your ride on a 2km boardwalk over the mangroves before a cold drink or brew at the famous Horeke Tavern, right on the edge of the Hokianga Harbour. Your shuttle will collect you from Horeke (15:30) to take you back to Paihia or your accommodation.
