NEW in 2021! A unique and fun way to explore the Jurassic geothermal landscape through the Whakarewarewa thermal reserve.
Our Whaka Geothermal Walking Trails were introduced as a new visitor experience in 2020 and have proved to be a very popular way to enjoy the natural surrounds of Whakarewarewa on foot. To take that exploration to the next level, we have teamed up with Electric Bike Rentals Rotorua to offer an exclusive Whaka E-Bike Hire & Trails experience on two wheels, into previously non-accessible areas of the Reserve!
This is an ideal outdoor leisurely adventure for families, couples, and small groups of up to 10 people, and for all levels of fitness. Kids can ride independently or on a dual-carry E-bike.
After picking up your E-Bike, and following our safety induction process, you’ll start your exclusive Whaka E-Bike cycling tour from the Whakarewarewa Tours visitor centre across the famous Whaka ‘Penny-Divers’ bridge and to the beginning of the Whaka E-Bike Trail.
After soaking in the stunning sights of bubbling geysers and the varying shades of hot spring lakes and pools, you can continue your E-Bike experience through to the world-famous Redwood Forest, just a 5–minute ride away. Book online and pre-order a Picnic Hamper to enjoy along the way, or bring your own hamper.
