Bike Gear

For your comfort we recommend bringing you own riding gear with you, however if you want to travel light, we have a wide range of quality riding gear, accessories and luggage available at very reasonable rates.

Our Guided Motorcycle Tours

We have carefully selected the most interesting, scenic routes and included many main attractions and points of interest.

A regular day starts with a good briefing after breakfast. We talk about the highlights of the day and important fuel stops or turnings etc and the location of the evening accommodation and then you are free to ride as you like. Some people like to photograph and others like cappuccino stops so they ride at a different pace but you will naturally team up with whoever suits your kind of riding. You can also ride with the guide. We try to meet up for lunch stops or other breaks during the day and in the afternoon/evening we meet at the hotel or campground.

Hotel Tours
On these tours we use a mixture of 3-4 star quality accommodation. The tour cost includes breakfast but does not include lunch or evening meals. We usually go out as a group to a local restaurant for dinner. There will be a variety of restaurants near our nightly accommodation to suit different budgets and tastes.

Camping & Cabin Tours
For people who enjoy the outdoors, star gazing and waking up to the birds' morning chorus, this is the ideal choice. These tours give you a true closeness to our amazing New Zealand nature. We have selected some of the most scenic camping sites available in New Zealand. All camping equipment is provided by us. One tent per person/couple. Alternatively, if you are not keen on camping you can join these tours using the cabin option. All you need is to bring a good sleeping bag.

Breakfast is included in the camping tours and served in the camp. Dinner is cooked on site by the guides, except for 3 evenings when we eat out. After breakfast and evening meals we share the duty to do the dishes so everyone has a chance to help out and also get to know each other better.

Our Tour Guides
Our guides live in New Zealand, are active motorbike riders and know the roads and country extremely well. They ensure the smooth running of all our tours to maximize your enjoyment of your NZ holiday.

The guides will give you informative briefings outlining the points of interest. They will help with booking any activities you may like to try as well as being great travel buddies. They will endeavour to help you do the things you want to do on your motorcycle vacation.

Our service
We make a point of avoiding a "cattle drive" by limiting the tour groups to a maximum of 12 and giving each rider sufficient freedom to travel at their own pace. A day’s ride is usually between 200-400km allowing plenty of time for sightseeing, relaxing or more bike riding.

Our support vehicle transports your luggage and provides backup on the road thus enabling you to enjoy your riding to the full. In the mornings we discuss the day's route, attractions on the way and our destination for the end of the day. The road is then yours to enjoy.
