Tire-gripping road surfaces with glaciers, volcanoes and palm trees – that’s what you can expect on this motorcycle tour through New Zealand!

This motorcycle tour to New Zealand is worth the effort of jetting to the other side of the planet. “There’s a reason the sun shines on New Zealand before anywhere else” (Lonely Planet). New Zealand, also known as the “Paradise Down Under” or the “World‘s Most Beautiful End”, offers everything you could possibly look for in a holiday destination.

New Zealand features mountains and glaciers, wild coasts and long sandy beaches, rainforest and hot springs. It is home to an interesting indigenous culture and to the friendliest people you can imagine. It offers a wide range of crazy activities like heli-biking, bungee jumping and jet boating. It is heaven for motorcyclists because the roads are beautiful, well maintained, and mostly empty.

This motorcycle tour will introduce you to all the major highlights of New Zealand. The Sky Tower in Auckland, the hot springs in Rotorua, the Art Deco district in Napier, museums, shops and restaurants in Wellington, the ferry-cruise across Cook Strait, the spectacular Queen Charlotte Drive, the wild West Coast, the rainforest and the glaciers that run through it, the world‘s adventure capital Queenstown, the amazingly beautiful Milford Sound and the breathtaking view to Mount Cook, New Zealand‘s highest mountain. This is a truly unforgettable tour.

New Zealand Tour

The end of a trip like this New Zealand motorcycle tour is truly bittersweet. Great new friends, a new country visited and so many learning moments. It’s simply an experience that cannot be easily replicated without the dedication of a service provider like Edelweiss Bike Travel. May the friendships blossom and grow, may the experiences continue to increase in number and may the memories bring smiles to faces for years to come. Thanks for the memories!

New Zealand Tour

We continue to do Edelweiss trips because we simply love them. The mystique of New Zealand had always placed it on my bucket list and we had talked to enough other Edelweiss touring friends to know we would not be disappointed with the New Zealand tour… and we weren’t! Besides great new friends and tour guides, New Zealand offered the beauty of Colorado and the “wild and wonderful” of West Virginia.

New Zealand Tour

For Silvana and me, riding through New Zealand – or as the natives call it: ”Aotearoa“ – was the experience of a lifetime! The ”land of the great white cloud“ offered everything we could have hoped, and all those incredibly scenic roads will be saved in our memories forever. We had the pleasure of seeing wonderful blue lakes, enormous mountains, green valleys and meeting friendly people. Sometimes there was no one around and we felt like we were discovering a new and unknown country. Edelweiss has chosen the best of all routes, excellent hotels, and stops at places which are of great interest – all of which guaranteed that we would enjoy this tour to the fullest. We have completed seven tours with Edelweiss Bike Travel so far and, if we could do only one of them again, it would be New Zealand in a heart beat!

New Zealand Tour

Our participation in Edelweiss‘ New Zealand tour was just great. The overall organization was fantastic and our group consisted of wonderful people from the world over. When starting the tour on the South Island we got to see beautiful places like Lake Wanaka and the Fox Glacier, and visited exciting cities like Queenstown. We experienced all this while being taken good care of by Edelweiss and its tour guides, Thomas and Katharina – thank you. This was our third tour with Edelweiss Bike Travel and my wife, Hana, and I are ready to sign up for the next one – we are just too happy.
