The New Zealand Explorer motorcycle tour takes you on some of the many great biking roads NZ has to offer with an emphasis on the more untouched areas of the country.

Of course, some of the main attractions shouldn't be missed either, so they are included in our itinerary. For more adventurous riders there will be opportunities to ride some gravel road alternatives en-route.

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.

During your bike tour there will be plenty of time for other activities and to experience some Kiwi hospitality. Riding days are in general, between 200-350 km and there is time allowed for personal discoveries and rest days for other activities or extra riding, of course.
