As a mountain bike tour provider, JustMTB specialises in taking international visitors on mountain biking tours of New Zealand. However the riding is only part of the adventure people will discover during their holiday.
When legs are tired and bodies full of fatigue, sometimes, on a week-long tour, riders need to switch focus and recuperate before the next day’s ride. Local guides brimming with expertise aim to guide visitors to some of New Zealand’s most unique rest and relaxation locations. After a big day on the mountain bike, there is no better way to rest weary bodies than taking a soak in the natural thermal hot pools of North Island. Slipping into the warm water, there’s an instant feeling of rejuvenation as the natural warm springs tickle your feet, all the better washed down with a refreshment or two.
After a day of shuttling some of the famous New Zealand trails, there’s nothing better than a breath taking coastal walk to enjoy a swim in the sea. Under the vibrant red Pohutakawa trees, the crystal clear water is stunning and refreshing, the scrapes from a day’s riding tingle in the salt. Riders can then carry on with the thrill ride and climb the rocks for a safe yet exhilarating cliff dive. The purest white sand, rocky coastal cliffs and a hot water beach bring a unique take on “going to the beach.”
It’s not all outdoors thrills and spills though – with a strong Maori history and culture, New Zealand is a vibrant and bubbling society. Visitors can explore the ancient world of the Maori, delve into their island lifestyle, unchanged for thousands of years and see the famous war dance, the Haka, or take a paddleboard trip to the 10m high Maori cultural carvings.
If after all the action you’re keen just to relax, the JustMTB guides will show you around some of New Zealand’s famous wineries and breweries. Take an award winning wine, a locally sourced organic antipasto board and an afternoon in the sun with a waiter to refill your drink – is there a better way to relax?
After all a mountain bike holiday is as the name suggests half mountain biking and half holiday. So build yourself a bucket list and tick some off those experiences on a JustMTB tour.
