This trip combines outstanding highlights of New Zealand, leads off the beaten track and gets a very intense "New Zealand touch" by the genuine "Kiwi" as a tour guide, especially since he accompanies you on a 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" perfectly fits the character of this tour!
You will visit Cape Reinga at the 90-Mile Beach, the northernmost and Mt. Cook, the highest point of the country. You will get to know the unique Maori culture during 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 up-and-coming wine culture by visiting an exclusive winery incl. wine tasting. You will experience the fascinating world of the sounds particularly intensively during an overnight boat trip. It goes without saying that we will ride breathtakingly beautiful motorcycle routes, enjoy spectacularly diverse landscapes and stay in great accommodations.
