What to expect
  • This day trip delivers you round-trip from Christchurch to Kaikoura for an off-road quad bike adventure. After hotel pickup you’re driven 2.5 hours to the Kaikoura peninsula, a coastal region buffered by the high snowcapped peaks of the Seaward Kaikoura Range.  You’ll have free time to explore town or purchase lunch (own expense) before rejoining your guide for the trailhead. After a safety briefing and training session, get comfortable on your 4WD all-terrain vehicle, then follow your guide in a group caravan ride on a backcountry route over grassy slopes and down riverbanks.  Trace the rugged Kaikoura coastline and search for commonly spotted marine life including whales, dolphins and seals from the apex of the Haumuri Bluffs. Enjoy light refreshments upon your return to the base camp before the drive back to Christchurch, with drop-off at your hotel.

    Kaikoura Peninsula Walkway
    Stop: 11 hours
    Your adventure starts with pickup from your Christchurch hotel. We drive 2.5 hours to the picturesque peninsula town of Kaikoura, backed by the snowcapped Seaward Kaikoura Range. Either have an early lunch (own expense) or have free time to explore town before heading to your trailhead. Get equipped with your 4-wheel, all-terrain vehicle and receive a safety orientation and training session from your guide. All quad bike drivers must be at least 16 years of age; those under 16 can ride as a passenger on an 8-wheel vehicle driven by a guide. Once you feel comfortable, follow your guide through eastern New Zealand's scenic backcountry. Traverse over grassy slopes, down riverbanks and along Kaikoura's rugged coastline topped by the Haumuri Bluffs. Keep your eye out for the area's abundant wildlife — seals are commonly spotted down by the water. Enjoy some light refreshments upon your return to the base camp. Then hit the road for the 2.5-hour journey back to Christchurch.

The Kaikoura Quad Bike Tour was the favorite part of our first visit to New Zealand. With a handful of guided tours behind us, we were amazed at not just how much fun the quad bikes were, but how attentive and knowledgeable the guides were. The views were breathtaking and our only regret is that we couldn't keep going for days on days.
