The long white cloud TAF

New Zealand

New Zealand – one of the few places in the world that even people who „have been everywhere“ often have not seen yet. A great reason for us to go ahead and discover the land down under. Get ready for one of the most beautiful countries in the world!

Incredibly friendly people, thousands of sheep, a dense rain forest, gorgeous bays and beaches, wonders of nature like geysers and bubbling mud pools, historic towns with beautiful architecture – it’s all here for us to discover.

But it’s not only the scenery which makes New Zealand special – it is the whole experience: great motorcycle roads for every taste – including the chance to ride some gravel for those who are more adventurous, excellent food, and good riding weather, while it is cold North of the equator. What a treat! On our journey we will visit both famous towns like Auckland, Napier and Wellington and the touristic must-sees like Rotorua or Lake Taupo. This is a tour you will never forget – let’s discover the land of the long white cloud!
