This activity takes place in Taupo NZ, using native bush and all-terrain trails specifically built for quad bikes.

Suitable for groups of friends and families alike, choose from a 1-hour, 2-hour or 3-hour excursion that explores the area's unique geography from Jurassic woodland to dramatic waterfalls. Ideal for total beginners, the easy to use quad bikes don’t require a driving licence, offering children from 9 years old a chance to drive! Organised according to age and ability, guests will start their adventure with a short safety briefing and demo – allowing you to test your throttle and speed control on a practise circuit.

Be prepared to wet – trails will have you riding through muddy bogs, streams and slip n’ slide sections that are sure to take you by surprise.
