What You Can Expect

Kaikoura Quad Bike Tour from Christchurch

Kaikoura Quad Bike

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.

The owners run this amazing experience from the comfort of their own farm! The whole loop was a breathtaking view of the mountains and the coast and seeing their sheep and cows roaming was a bonus! Excellent teachers, they really let you take the time to learn how to ride the quad and the view really is spectacular. It's the best way to see Kaikoura!
