Overview

Explore the landscape around the Franz Josef glacier and New Zealand's rugged West Coast on a 2-hour ATV tour from Franz Josef village. Take in the mountains and rainforest of the Southern Alps as you go offroad and follow paths carved by ancient glaciers paths in the wilderness. Your guide leads you through the rainforest, riverbeds, grasslands, and mud on a thrilling tour that includes use of ATV equipment and wet weather gear.

What to Expect

Once you have signed in at the office, you will be able to begin your adventure. After a short 5-minute walk down to the containers you will get dressed up in the provided wet weather gear, gumboots and helmet.

You will then have a short detailed safety brief before you will test your skills on the two test tracks. The journey will then take you through dense rainforest, riverbeds and grassland all with the back drop of the spectacular Southern Alps. There are plenty of selfie opportunities with a break halfway to give you some local information on the area.

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

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

Wicked experience

This was soooo good. Guides were lovely. Well organised. 4 of us went on 2 bikes and changed drivers half way through. Easy to get the hang of and felt safe. All gear and gum boots provided. Would definitely go again!More

Fantastic but Rude

One of the most amazing things we have done in South Island, a must do. Would’ve been an amazing experience rather than just another activity, if young lady Olivia would’ve been just a little polite. I would suggest google about Quad biking and get the...More

Fantastic!! Do it.

Not only was the scenery majestic and fun to travel through, Sarah was an absolute star! Fun, informative and likes to tell a good story as well as charge through the fauna. Thanks Sarah, we had a wonderful time!

Had a tour on the quads as 2 couples. Clear safety instructions and away we went to the River flats crossing some knee deep water and then into the forest to tackle some tight flat tracks. We then tried a really muddy track which l...More

I don't think there was a wight limit because if you can get on these bikes & drive decently that's what matters. These are hefty & do take some strength. Their suits fit everyone in a bulky way--covering everything so you... More
