Riding with the Giants

Waipoua Kauri Forest

Northland has a fantastic climate and some great unspoilt terrain to explore; best of all would have to be the 85 km from Dargaville to Opononi. The reason for this is the magical 8 km climb through the Waipoua kauri forest. It’s not often one can use the words ‘magical’ and ‘climb’ in the same sentence, but once you’ve ridden this road, we’re sure you’ll agree.
