No wonder, as this trip combines outstanding highlights of New Zealand, sometimes leads off the beaten track and gets a particularly intense "New Zealand touch" through the genuine "Kiwi" as tour guide, especially as he accompanies you on the motorcycle!

With the "Best of NZ" tour, we combine the outstanding highlights of our other three New Zealand tours in one tour - the name "Best of NZ" thus perfectly matches the character of this tour!

You will travel to the northernmost point of the country with Cape Reinga at 90-Mile Beach and to the highest point with Mt. Cook. You will get to know the unique Maori culture in a Maori Cultural Event and have enough time to hike the volcanic area around the Tongariro. You will get an impression of the country's emerging wine culture by visiting an exclusive winery including wine tasting. You will experience the fascinating world of sounds especially intensively during a boat tour with overnight stay. It goes without saying that we ride breathtakingly beautiful motorcycle routes, enjoy spectacularly diverse landscapes and stay overnight in great accommodation.
