This seventeen kilometre loop has an incredible variety of scenery including the famous Huka Falls, views of New Zealand's first geothermal power station.
The loop starts at our mountain bike shop and continues along the Waikato river bringing you out to the Aratiatia dam where you can see the opening of the control gates (tourist spill). After seeing the incredible Aratiatia rapids at full flow, where The Hobbit was filmed, your ride returns via the breath-taking geothermal streams to our store.
If you're choosing the option to ride with a guide you will learn more about the area, sustainable geothermal and hydro energy production in Taupo. Including a brief on Māori history in the region that was discovered by the Māori chief Tia.
