Day One : The Mighty Waikato

Departing from Cambridge, our shuttle takes you to the foot of the Hakarimata Range in the heart of Ngaruawahia. Ride south along the Waikato River glimpsing precious views of Turangawaewae Marae, home of the Maori King. Enjoy the gentle rolls of the River Ride over the newly opened Perry Bridge – already a landmark in the District. Continue south before detouring to enjoy a coffee at Horotiu’s Coffee Club – and check out the Perry Bike Park for a bit of fun!

From there you’ll carry on past the region’s largest Pa Site, Maungaharekeke Pa, the Regional Equestrian Centre and Hamilton Mountain Bike Park before reaching Hamilton’s CBD. Here you’re spoiled for choice for activities – visit the Waikato Museum, enjoy some local shopping or explore the public art dotted along the main road. You’ll end your trip at the world-famous Hamilton Gardens where you’ll meet the Waikato River Explorer for an exceptional 90minute river cruise.  

Our shuttle will collect you and return you to Podium Lodge.
