Please Note: Unfortunately our booking management software is not compatible with Get Your Guide, so the availability may not be correctly displayed. Please contact us before placing your reservation to confirm our availability, otherwise view our website to check availability. Sorry for this inconvenience (we have raised the issue with get your guide). This is a fantastic opportunity for those with a short time in Christchurch to go and experience sealed and/or metal road riding in New Zealand. The recommended route twists through rural New Zealand and often features sheep and lots of waves from friendly farmers and motorcyclists alike. There's a combination of eclectic townships to stop at along the way and plenty of opportunities to take incredible photos that will make your friends back home jealous! The route is only a recommended route and people are allowed to travel on any legal roads during this tour. Some of our motorcycles can take a pillion passenger, which you can add to your experience for a small extra charge. Please enquire about this before booking.
