Quad biking along the riverbed, through the temperate rainforest,to see the Franz Josef glacier was one of the highlights of our two week lightning tour of New Zealand. Our guides Olivia and Jamie were both very safety conscious, and good training was provided at the start of the ride to make sure that we were confident to handle the bikes.... More

The quad biking was brilliant and great fun. The instructors were really helpful and made sure that we knew what to do. The activity was through rivers and through a forest. I cannot say enough how brilliant it was. Lovely scenery and great rush of adrenaline.

We stumbled on this opportunity after our heli flight to the Franz Josef glacier. We walked into the shop and asked whether we could join the quad bike group scheduled at 12 noon. To our delight, there was still one bike available and we immediately signed up. We were asked to return at 11.30am. After the formalities, we walked to... More

We had a previous experience in riding ATV's in Mexico and were excited to see that we could do it again in New Zealand. The guide was terrific. She made sure we were knowledgeable about riding the quad bikes and did all the safety "stuff". She was professional, but fun. The Franz Josef area is perfect for riding. We drove... More

This was the best!! Our guide was very friendly and made the trip so much fun. The rain didn't dampen the trip as we were provided with all wet weather gear and the track was very wet and muddy. I would recommend this to anyone coming to the area and would do it myself again. Thank you

My 12-year son and I did a buggy ride through the forest and riverbed tracks this afternoon - it was a lot of fun. There'd been a lot of rain the previous day - so we got wet (more so if you're in the front seat), but they provide full wet weather gear. A really great way to spend some... More
