The owners are the most fabulous and accommodating. We arrived later than expected in Ohakune but Jane was there waiting for us when we finally made it. We chose the ride down Mt Ruapehu starting at 1600m. Jane drove us up the mountain and gave us lots of information about the area, Lord of the Rings filming sites, and an idea of what it's like in the winter time. The ride was spectacular (but I'd recommend allowing plenty of daylight hours for the trip, even if it only takes an hour so you have time to stop along the way) and Darren was waiting for us when we arrived back at the Station. Will definitely be back to do more biking in the area. Thanks again Jane and Darren!

I have just had the most fantastic five days of mountain biking the Mountain to Sea bike track. Starting at Ohakune and finishing at Whanganui.
Many thanks to Darren and Jane who had organised our accommodation and transported our luggage. I think the ride was made even better because of Darrens knowledge of the tracks and their history and by the support he gave us each day.
This ride is a must!

This trip was great from start to finish. Darren and Jane were fabulous with lots of special little unespected extras thrown in. The places we stayed at were all fantastic, especially the Flying Fox Lodge. Fantastic scenery, warm and friendly people, great food and great trails to ride and experience. Would reccommend this adventure for all, even those with not great bike fitness.

It's a healthy and exhilarating way to take a holiday break. The bikes are really well maintained and easy to ride. The service helpful and friendly. I wished I had bike pants. Sore bottom after a couple of days. Have e transfers included excellent.

This was a great way of experiencing the Old Coach route. We were transported with the rented bikes to the start of our trail and there was lots of history boards to give information. The views change constantly. Some of the trail is quite challenging and a less experienced cyclist might have to get off and push for a very short distance. I would thoroughly recommend this activity.
