Get out there 

Harness the elements

Let’s go!

Get your blood pumping and harness the elements with some outdoor action from rafting down the Rangitikei, to shredding some trails or treading our tracks. For a slower pace, why not tee off at Aotearoa’s oldest golf course or take to the ranges on horseback for some epic views.

Walks & Hikes

Lace up your boots and take to the tracks. From overnight tramps in the Ruahine Ranges, to daytime strolls under the towering tōtaras, we’ve got the lot. So, whatever you’re seeking, it’s time to get amongst the wilderness and see what we’re made of.

Cycling & Mountain Biking 

Whether you’re a lover of fat wheels or thin, or something in between, strap on your helmet and send it down one of our epic trails! From off-road adventures to family-friendly tracks, there’s something for all who venture our way, with the added bonus of a epic backdrop to your journey.

Outdoor Adventure

Count yourself an adrenaline junkie? Then we’re home to your next adventure. Think speedy downhill mountain biking, 4WD off-roading, whitewater rafting, or wind-powered blokarting. In Manawatū, there’s always something new to get your teeth stuck into.
