Wilderness Trail Shuttles
In partnership with our sister company, we offer shuttle transport on all sections of the trail plus other essential destinations nearby, getting you and your bike where you need to be.
We offer two excellent day-ride options involving a short shuttle hop and a ride back to Hokitika, the most popular of which is the 15km Mahinapua Magic trip which will fit into most travel schedules. Starting at the Treetop Walkway, you'll ride through the magnificent forest and wetland of the Mahinapua Scenic Reserve – a highlight of any visit to the West Coast.
