Tucked under the majestic Southern Alps on New Zealand's rugged untamed West Coast sits Franz Josef village and the magnificent Franz Josef Glacier offering spectacular mountain views & dense rainforest. This is where you will experience a total 2-hour small group quad bike journey.
Imagine following ancient glacial pathways carved into the landscape by ice and water and the thrill of driving these fun 2-seater quad bikes through this wild place. You will be amazed at what is around every twist and turn as you are guided through rainforests, riverbeds, grasslands, sand and mud. Feel the thrill of fresh air in your face and the excitement of riding quads.
Total trip duration is 2 hours with up to 1 & 1/2 hours on the bike.
What You'll Get
Once you have signed in at the office, you will be able to begin your adventure. After a short 5-minute walk down to the containers you will get dressed up in the provided wet weather gear, gumboots and helmet.
You will then have a short detailed safety brief before you will test your skills on the two test tracks. The journey will then take you through dense rainforest, riverbeds and grassland all with the back drop of the spectacular Southern Alps. There are plenty of selfie opportunities with a break halfway to give you some local information on the area.
This place is truly special, one of only a handful of places in the world where ice and forest meet in such a spectacular manner and the ATV quads are the ultimate way to view it all. The quad bike adventure is fun in the sun and even better in the rain.
Enjoy a truly memorable adventure as you ride with the guides to gain views of the Franz Josef glacier and its surrounding snow capped peaks.
