Central North island has excellent mountain biking tracks: Craters of the Moon in Taupo, 42nd Traverse, Fishers Track, Old Coach Road, Mangapurua Valley just to name a few. Check with locals about the conditions of the tracks, in the winter some tracks are unrideable and with the pumice in the soil, you will ruin your brakes! Check weather and be prepared, a lot of these places have limited cell phone coverage and can be in very rural areas so you need to be self sufficient. Definitely bring a head light; it has often come to good use.

Tongariro National Park had dual heritage status, not just for the natural stuff but also because of the huge cultural significance of this area. There are historical sites dotted around the place such as Te Porere; there is a lot of information to be found about the local legends at visitors centres. Immerse yourself
