Pureora, located in the heart of the King Country in the Central North Island, between Lake Taupo and Te Kuiti, is home to the Rereahu people, whose descendants came to Aotearoa on the Tainui waka.
During European times Pureora had a significant logging industry. Dozens of timber mills provided a living to hundreds of people living in and around what was then an extensive forest of huge podocarp trees, including kahikatea, rimu, totara and matai. Today the Pureora Timber Trail is regarded as being the best two-day mountain bike ride in NZ. But we are not going to cycle it, we are going to explore the region. The awe-inspiring forest landscapes, and historic remnants of the logging industry including machinery and mill workers houses from the 1940s. The lodge is the ideal place to base ourselves, to explore the region, as far south as Raetihi & Ohakune, both historic timber towns.
Includes: Door to door transport, all accommodation, breakfasts & dinners. Attraction entry fees as stated.
