Upokongaro to the Tasman Sea

Distance:  19 km    Time: 1 - 2 hours    Grade: 2 Easy

From the village of Upokongaro, where the local pub and the café welcome riders, continue to follow the Whanganui River to urban Whanganui. 

Cycle through parks and along boardwalks through the centre of town, past artists' studios and workshops to the North Mole, where the Whanganui River meets the Tasman Sea.  This is the end of the Mountains to Sea Cycle Trail.

There are plenty of accommodation options to choose from in Whanganui, together with a great range of cafes, restaurants and pubs.  Take time to visit some of our wonderful arts, culture and heritage sites.
