All of New Zealand is amazing. And the people are sociable. The South is full of intrigue, capture one night in Queenstown, for full on nightclubbing, or cruise Milford Sounds for the Adventure of Dazzelment. Fishing options are always open. From North to South we can show you the way to go, all on the best quality Touring Bikes available. Not only do we offer great roads, but the trails for offroad enthusiasts will leave you smiling for weeks to come as you capture the feeling we have termed "Godzone".
The Pacific Coast Highway is one of the great touring routes within the Pacific and is said to be one of the best rides in the world. Not only does it depict the flavor of a unique region within New Zealand, but it provides easy access to the untamed and natural features found only on a Pacific Island.
The Highway travels on great paved twisty riding roads through a spacious region where land and sea intermingle, atmosphere is a delightful blend of natural attractions and easy going recreation. The people are a pleasant mix of Polynesian and European cultures.
Geographically the Highway follows beaches and scenic coastline. Blue waters roll onto clean white sands, while protective arms of bush-clad hills shelter bays abundant with marine life. Rolling farmlands and fertile orchards enhance the scenic splendor of the region. Opportunities to enjoy natures attractions abound.
Historically the route holds many cultural treasures. It was one of the first landing areas for both Polynesian and European voyagers, relics of this heritage are found in the museums and on the Maori Marae (meeting houses).
The journey leads from Auckland (the main gateway to NZ, city of sails) across to The Coromandel Peninsular then down the East coast through charming towns to Gisborne, Napier and Hastings. You can also visit the thermal wonderland of Rotorua, this is a short distance from the Highway (40min. ride)
If you are planning to take this ride you should allow at least 3-4 days.
Another great ride in New Zealand is the trip from Lake Te Anau to Milford Sound in the South Island - this is truly spectacular (also refer to our tour itineraries).
We wish you a lot of fun and a great time riding through this beautiful country.
Riding in New Zealand
Roads in New Zealand are perfect for motorcyclists, most are well sealed with a good grippe surface and no potholes. They are interesting winding through the loverly countryside. For those wanting to go off the beaten track there are also plenty of unsealed (gravel roads) in the country areas. Large capacity enduro bikes are a favorite for these roads, you can certainly have a lot of fun exploring the remote country and coastal areas. Camping out is usually no problem in many areas of NZ.
