Across Country Quad Bikes

Adventure Tour - Franz Josef

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.

Imagine following ancient glacial pathways carved into the landscape by ice and water and the thrill of driving these fun ATV quad bikes through this wild place. You will be amazed at what is around every twist and turn as you follow the trail from riverbeds to forests, grasslands sand and mud. Feel the thrill of fresh air in your face and the excitement of riding ATV quads.

This place is truly unique, one of only a handful of places in the world where ice and forest meet in such a spectacular manner, and ATV quads are the ultimate way to view it all!! Our quad bike adventure is fun in the sun and even better in the rain!!

Our Trips

Depart our "quad base" and head across stony braided riverbeds, see glacial fed rivers and listen to our guides tell you about local history. Drive though dense rain forest and soak up the atmosphere as you pass by ferns, mosses and mature podocarp trees in this lush watery world.

Our vehicles are incredibly easy to ride. With a short lesson anyone aged 16 or over can easily and safely enjoy riding our ATV quad bikes. But don't worry kids these fantastic bikes are a first in New Zealand and feature a specially designed passenger seat enabling whole families to enjoy this experience in safety and comfort. Drive if you can or sit back and enjoy the ride! The passenger seat is suitable for both adults or kids.

Ride out to 10,000 year old moraine left by ancient glacial pathways and enjoy enough space to roam. View snow capped peaks and "Ka Roimata o Hinehukatere" otherwise known as the Franz Josef glacier as it plunges from around 2500 metres into the green canopy of the forest a mere 230 metres above sea level.

Enjoy a truly memorable adventure as you ride with our guides to gain views of the Franz Josef glacier and it's surrounding snow capped peaks.
