Destination Guide - New Zealand Motorcycle Tours


We all have trips that we dream about.

There are always those places that you dream of going to (like our trip through the United Kingdom). And when you throw a motorcycle into the picture, it just gets that much better. One of the places that we've always dreamed of riding through was New Zealand. And then we took a look at the actual tours of the areas and began to wonder, what is really holding us back?

Traveling over seas can be a bit daunting. The planning, the money, getting the time off work can all seem so difficult. But first, let's take a look at what makes this trip so worth the effort. We found a company that offers a twelve day tour of Southern New Zealand that is very literally a once in a life time trip. The tour starts in Christchurch, New Zealand and makes a twelve day loop hitting areas such as Westport and Queenstown before dropping back off in Christchurch.

This particular trip is about 40% trail riding on remote country trails and through parks and even glaciers allowing you to see New Zealand in a way that few rarely ever get the chance to see. Plus you'll get to see the world wide revered cities that New Zealand is known for like Queenstown, which is thought to be the adventure capital of the world. In a matter of around 2,000 miles you'll see all of the most popular cities of New Zealand while traveling through some of the most hidden and remote parts. Plus you get to do it all on a motorcycle of your choice. This particular tour company has anything from a Triumph Bonneville to a Harley-Davidson Electra Glide to a BMW F800 GS.

This twelve day tour hits up all of the most popular parts of New Zealand while traveling through some of the most remote trails.   See travel through valleys, mountains, glaciers and so much more all in less than two weeks.

So what's stopping you? Seems like a lot to plan? Tours like this one are very heavily planned out and guided by locals who know New Zealand like no one else. The only planning you'll have to do is plan to take the time off of work. The next set of tours looks to be set for December 5th, which gives you plenty of time to notify your boss. Worried about the cost? Other than the plane ticket to New Zealand, this trip can cost as low as $8,000, which includes the price of renting the motorcycle, thirteen nights of accommodations, any travel fee's such as ferries and a whole ton more.

But this is only one of the many tours that this particular company offers. Take a look around at several different rides that you can do with this or many other companies offer for a varying array of prices. Just don't sell yourself short because this will surely be a ride to remember for the rest of your life. Check out www.motorbiketours.co.nz for more information on this tour.
