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!
