A Coastal Craic
Voyage to Middle Earth.
Duration: 2 Weeks
The South Island of New Zealand is one of the most beautiful places on Earth. The gods were generous with their favours in this mystical land and you will experience some of the best motorcycling roads imaginable. This trip includes bike rental, so all you need to do is fly in and your steed will be waiting for you…This is truly an adventure of a lifetime.
It is never easy trying to choose a route to encompass the "best bits" of a place like New Zealand, as it is ALL incredible! We have tried to provide you with some of the most exhilarating and breathtakingly beautiful roads and views that form this extraordinary part of the world. The word "awesome" is wildly over used these days, but this land truly is just that!
This trip will fill you with unforgettable moments and some of the best riding that you could ever hope to encounter on our planet. People often feel that it is too far to go for a couple of weeks - well, it isn't half as bad a trip as you might think and when you get there...it is like you have arrived in the Garden of Eden. It is simply the most astonishing place.
We leave in the morning at 9.00am and aim to be at our destination by 6.00pm in the evening. This equates to around 6 hours in the saddle - we typically ride for an hour and a half before a 20 minute break for coffee with a 1 hour stop for lunch and another break in the afternoon. We are definitely happy to stop to admire the view and for photo opportunities along the way.
You will fly into Christchurch where you will be met on arrival and where we will pick up the bikes
We will head north round to Nelson, following the coast round, cutting in to cross over via Arthur's Pass
You will enjoy a wide variety of amazing landscape from coastline to mountain passes
Nights will be spent in small but delightful hotels or B&Bs in picturesque villages along the way
We will take the road through the breathtaking Fjordland to Milford Sound
The pace will not be quick as most roads will meander through the extraordinary NZ scenery and you will be able to enjoy the views to the full!
