Stay with fantastic hosts at our favourite locations
We have a number of accommodation providers located near the trail which we highly recommend. Listed in the order you’ll come across them on the trail, they each provide their own charm and character against the backdrop of the beautiful Remutaka countryside.
Arorangi Country Homestay is a beautiful bed and breakfast nestled in the heart of the Upper Hutt countryside providing a relaxing atmosphere and comfortable beds. Located just past Maymorn station, it’s the perfect place to stop at after the first day out on the trails for our 3, 4 or 5 night tours.
For those cycling further afield on one of our Martinborough excursions, The Martinborough Hotel is a beautiful boutique hotel full of charm and character located in the heart of the village. With an on-site restaurant and close proximity to world-class vineyards, this is truly the perfect place to relax and sit back with a glass of wine after a day out on the trail.
Karaka Cottage is part of Waiorongomai Station, an iconic sheep and beef station that has been owned and farmed by the Matthews family for 6 generations. It is the perfect stop for our larger groups, accommodating up to 10 people. A stone’s throw from Lake Wairarapa, this makes for a great location for the second night out on the trail.
One of our favourite stops, the converted railway cabins at Te Rakau are great for our smaller groups and couples. These quaint, rustic cabins are full of charm - and don’t forget to use the outside hot bath under the stars! Te Rakau makes for a great location at the end of day two - just 6km from Ocean Beach and the start of The Wild Coast.
Riverstone Cottage is situated on the banks of the Orongorongo river, at the end of The Wild Coast section. For those wanting to take their time over the four day loop tour, this marks a great spot to spend the night, before taking an easy day around the Pencarrow Coast and it’s side trails and lakes.
