The Tours starts at the Seaside town of Thames and finishing at Matamata-Hobbiton  which is less than 1.6 hours drive from Auckland International Airport, you can get your slice of New Zealand in a Four day fix to experience the diversity of our country.

The Hauraki Rail Trail is just about all flat trail while winding through rural New Zealand heartland that will seem light years away from the hustle and bustle of big cities.
