Full description
Combine excitement and adventure on a guided quad bike tour through native forest settings, around areas of a New Zealand farm, and up to lookout points with breathtaking coastal views of the Cable Bay area. Delight in the beautiful scenery and have lots of fun on your self-driven vehicle, whatever the weather. Start your experience with an instructional session and safety briefing from your experienced guide. Then, practice and hone your driving skills before departing on your tour. Choose between a 1.5-hour Farm Forest Ride or a 2.5-hour Bayview Circuit Tour. On the Farm Forest Ride, drive around the farmland and to the top of the Skywire Hill, before heading back down around the flats and along the banks of the river on a tour designed for all abilities. Alternatively, explore 14 kilometers (8.7 miles) of beautiful forest trails on the Bayview Circuit Tour. Ride past the Skywire then out to the stunning Bayview lookout over Delaware Bay, before descending back through the farm. Light refreshments are included.
