    This was a wonderful experience. There was quite a variety of types of mountain biking with solid uphill, reasonably technical downhill, "The Steps", the Graveyard and wonderful West Coast bush forest to enjoy. The highlight was the open shower at the Rough and Tumble Lodge and pizza at the end of the ride.

    We were a little pressed for time, so broke the walk up by driving from Tauranga Bay to Cape Foulwind lighthouse track. The track up was good to get the blood pumping although not a difficult walk. The only disappointing thing is I could not find any track access to the lighthouse itself.
    Good carpark and toilet facilities here which were quiet when we visited. Great views along the way.
    The full track is I expect a longer walk of an hour or two, but the walk to the lighthouse from the carpark is probably only 30 mins return.

    Excellent service and communication, made the trip easy, it was very wet, however we were informed and advised about the weather, over and above our expectations. And changed our plans easily

    Rented two bikes with a buddy for Old Ghost Road. Couldn't have been more sorted out by Adrian. Took the time to fit us to the bikes with the kit fitted. Recommend Adrian and Habitat Sports highly. West coast hard!

    This well made track was a delightful experience of natural and historical highlights. The track is easy, yet scenic and the information boards are great. Accessible, short and good for a picnic.

    We weren't sure whether the river conditions were suitable for our youngest 10 year old but the guides Marty & Bruce were very reassuring and we felt safe throughout. Booking was easy, all gear provided and we were toasty warm even in April! The rapids were perfect for our 10 year old not to be scared but she did have to hold on pretty tight and the white water was enough to give our teenagers a thrill. Bruce was really excellent at guiding and instructing and informative throughout. Great leap off the cliffs towards the end too. Good fun having a swim beside the raft but pretty cold even with thermals and a wetsuit! Great fun thanks guys! We loved it!!!
