Kiwi Style Bike Tours are teaming up with Adventure South for this fantastic late summer tour to the beautiful, unspoilt, top of New Zealand – Northland.

With our international tours on hold due to Covid-19, our guides are excited to have teamed up with local New Zealand company Adventure South to offer ‘Our Beautiful Back Yard’ Collection.   Our April 2021 Northland Tour starts from a pick up in Auckland and we make our way up the western coast through spectacular Kauri forests, the stunning Hokianga Harbour, past 90 Mile Beach all the way to the northern most point of New Zealand – Cape Reinga.  The journey back south takes us down the eastern coast – where, arguably, the most beautiful beaches of New Zealand are found.  We enjoy a ‘rest day’ in the Bay of Islands to allow you freedom to explore this beautiful area at a leisurely pace with your choice of transport – boat cruise, sea kayak, swimming, walking, more biking….oh the choices!!!

We have chosen to partner up with Adventure South as they are a very well run local company that shares similar values to Kiwi Style Bike Tours.  Like us, Adventure South strive to deliver challenging and fun cycle tours, set in the most beautiful places that are safely accessible by bike.  Some of our Kiwi Style guides have experience with regular guiding duties for Adventure South during our European off season.

This tour is operated by Adventure South, using your familiar Kiwi Style guides to showcase ‘Our Beautiful Back Yard’ Collection.

A $200 deposit is required to secure your place on this tour – fully refundable under Adventure South Covid-19 T & C’s.  Full terms and conditions can be found here:
