Experience the best of New Zealand.

Duration: 18 days

This is a road trip for those who want to experience the best of New Zealand. We start the journey in Auckland on the North Island and end in Christchurch on the South Island, with incredible driving experiences every day.

Experience the best of New Zealand with our most experienced tour guide, Helge Njå, on this popular tour featuring volcanoes, hobbit holes, glowworm caves, places like Tongariro National Park, and enjoy the beaches of Coromandel before taking the spectacular ferry ride between the North Island and the South Island.

The route continues on the South Island towards Christchurch, passing through beautiful mountain ranges, rainforests, and places like Queenstown and Fiordland National Park.

We highly recommend renting BMW motorcycles for this trip, as it is difficult to find Harley-Davidson motorcycles in the condition we require for our rental bikes.
