Coastal Classic

Auckland to Christchurch - Christchurch to Auckland

This is the ultimate motorcycle tour of New Zealand , covering all the main aspects of the country's many types of nature as well as riding some of the nicest motorcycle roads you can imagine. You will be smiling all the way.

The tour is a 21 day Hotel and Lodge tour with good quality accommodation in carefully selected locations. Your luggage is transported by your guide in the support vehicle. Riding days are in general between 200-300 km allowing time for visits and personal discoveries.
There are also 4 rest days for other activities or extra riding as an option, of course.

The following is a brief outline of the Coastal Classic tour.
You will spend an equal amount of time on both islands. This enables you to have a chance to experience the unique sub tropical north, endless beaches and volcanoes, as well as the glacial lakes, mountains and rain forest of the South Island.

You will experience the Coromandel Peninsula’s twisty roads and pristine beaches and witnessing the Maori way of life around the East Cape. Continuing southward from the East Cape we visit the Art Deco town of Napier and the North Island's famous wine district before reaching Wellington.

In the South Island the tour goes to Abel Tasman, then down the rugged and beautiful West Coast, past the Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers following the greenstone trail through Haast Pass to Wanaka. Through Central Otago we make our way to Milford Sounds then Queenstown and Lake Tekapo and finishing our trip in Christchurch.
