Whakarewarewa, otherwise known as the Redwoods, has to be one of my family’s favourite places to go. What we love is the mountain biking and trail running and walking. The facilities have changed a lot over the last few years, but the feel of the place remains – a true kiwi adventure hub!
Renowned for world-class mountain biking trails, there is something here for every ability of rider. Loops of Tahi and Dipper are within most people’s capabilities and enjoyable smooth trails – I’ve encountered little kids on those yellow plastic motorbikes navigating these! For the more adventurous, the choices are vast with trails winding and wending their ways through the forest and over the hills. There are even shuttles and buses to give you an assist on the climbs (just remember to turn off your Strava!).
If you’re keen for biking, we’ll tailor our yoga warm up and warm down for that. There are bikes for hire and if you wanted someone to show you the trails as part of your Yoga-2-Go Minibreak, we can sort that for you, too!
If you prefer your feet on the ground, the walking and running in the forest is amazing! We can set you off to explore on your own or take you for a run or a walk, whatever’s your thing.
Of course, there’s the famous Treetops walk to do day or night or day THEN night!
If you want, we’ll even organise a nice soak in a hot pool and great food and coffee at the end with Secret Spot.
Of course, this is just what’s available in the Redwoods – there’s heaps to do and see in Rotorua.
But that’s another story …
