Images of New Zealand

While on the road for our cycling trip through New Zealand, we encountered many beautiful sceneries. On this page you’ll find pictures which aren’t necessarily related to the cycle trails, but do illustrate the sheer beauty of this country. Maybe these images inspire you to jump on your bicycle and head out to cycle one of the Great Trails. With 22 well spread trails there’s always one near! 

More images will be added on a regular base.

Cape Reinga

At the Cape, the Tasman Sea meets the Pacific Ocean in a spectacular swirl of currents. At the northernmost tip of the Cape is a gnarled pohutukawa tree, believed to be over 800 years old. According to Maori oral history, the spirits of deceased Maori leap from this tree into the ocean to return to their ancestral homeland of Hawaiki.
While it’s not quite the most northern point of New Zealand (North Cape is further north, but it’s a scientific reserve and not open to the public), Cape Reinga is definitely the end of the road.

Nearby trail: Twin Coast Trail

Taranaki

Mount Taranaki is New Zealand’s most perfectly formed volcano. It is around 120,000 years old and last erupted in 1775 and volcanologists agree that the mountain is ‘dormant’ rather than extinct. Often described as ‘New Zealand’s most climbed mountain’, Mt Taranaki provides non-mountaineers with an achievable summit challenge.
