Meander alongside the Waikato River or get the pulse racing climbing to an inspirational mountain top view. There is everything from gentle jaunts on well laid out tracks to more ambitious hikes including overnight hut stays – and it's all easily accessible.
You don’t need to be super fit to enjoy super views in the Waikato region. The region’s high points have breathtaking vistas, whether that’s the rich green farming countryside spread below you like a checked tablecloth, or the distant sight of snow-capped mountains to the south.
The Waikato region is heaven for cyclists, whether on or off road. For more on cycleways in the regions visit our Waikato cycle trails
