Outstanding experience and super nice people! Everyone involved in our experience was outstanding, from David (who set up our reservation), to the pilot, to the driver who picked us up on the other end. All were incredibly nice guys. Our pilot started by asking us, "How keen are you?" and we let him know that we were very keen to ride some solid miles, so he took us out as far as he could. Even on our rainy day, the view of the misty trees was gorgeous and the small spot where he put us down was incredible. Best of all, we didn't see a single person on the trail or at any of the huts all day. Absolutely beautiful solitude on some great trails! I should add that the driver who picked us up at the end (Tony) went above and beyond. He provided us with a cold beverage at the trail's end and when we asked him if we could stop somewhere to wash off our bikes before loading them back into our rental car, he stopped at a water hose near the heliport and jist washed them off for us. Very nice guy. I can't say enough good things about our experience.

Whirinaki forest is one of my most favourite places to ride. I have been countless times but I never get sick of it. The forest is absolutely stunning with it's vast biodiversity from tiny ground cover to giant podocarps to make the perfect home for Whio (Blue Ducks), Kaka and Robin. The riding is always exciting and guaranteed rewarding. The track offers fun flowing downhill sections, climbs that vary from gentle to honest and rolling terrain along the crystal clear rivers. Anyone who is into the nature will love this adventure.
