Once you feel comfortable on your quad bike, follow your guide through eastern New Zealand's scenic backcountry. Traverse over grassy slopes, down riverbanks and along Kaikoura's rugged coastline topped by the Haumuri Bluffs. Keep your eye out for the area's abundant wildlife seals are commonly spotted down by the water.

    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!
