Location:West Coast & Glacier Country
2 Hour Quad Bike Adventure
We are excited about our new Beach Quad Bike Trip! Many of our tourists have never experienced riding along remote beaches, lounging beside a remote lagoon or riding through West Coast bursh terain and all with fantastic views of Glaciers and our beautiful Southern Alps mountain range.
Our regular trips depart our "quad base" and head across stony braided riverbeds, see glacial fed rivers and listen to our guides tell you about local history. Drive though dense rain forest and soak up the atmosphere as you pass by ferns, mosses and mature podocarp trees in this lush watery world.
Ride out to 10,000 year old moraine left by ancient glacial pathways and enjoy enough space to roam. View snow capped peaks and "Ka Roimata o Hine Hukatere" otherwise known as the Franz Josef glacier as it plunges from around 2500 metres into the green canopy of the forest a mere 230 metres above sea level.
Enjoy a cup of tea or chocolate and hear the old Maori legend of the glacier, its geology and tales of pioneers and adventures from times past. Take on the mud if you dare!
