The Mountains to Sea Cycle Trails are a breath-taking way to explore the Whanganui Region
From Tongariro National Park’s volcanic grandeur to the magical wilderness of the Whanganui River and the beautiful Tasman Sea coast, the Mountains to Sea cycle trails show off the sights, places and people that make the Whanganui region so special.
Known in te Reo Māori as Ngā Ara Tūhono, these connected pathways take cyclists to new adventures in a remarkable part of New Zealand. Connecting two national parks, the ride navigates alongside the tributaries and waters of the Whanganui River – with all its special stories to discover.
Mountains to Sea – Ngā Ara Tūhono is comprised of multiple sections that can be joined together for a multi-day adventure, or enjoyed as day rides to suit your ability, interests and itinerary.
