The Cardrona presents New Zealand's best guided quad bike tour. This two hour mountain experience takes you to the top of the mountains of the Cardrona Valley, Wanaka, navigating high country farm and alpine trails on very capable and easy to operate 350cc 4WD Yamaha quad bikes. River crossings, historical gold mining sites from the 1860s gold rush and breathtaking exclusive 360 degree panoramic views await, so be sure to bring a camera! All abilities welcome.See more details at www.thecardrona.co.nz/quads
After helmet fitting and making sure riders are sufficiently equipped for the mountains, a thorough pre-ride safety talk and instruction on quad bike operation is undertaken. Certain requirements and expectations from the riders are established and the tour departs up the mountain with the very experienced guide leading the way.The first part of the ascent travels through private farm land where Merino sheep and cattle may be seen, the terrain gives way to a more rugged rock & tussock alpine environment as the tour climbs higher, stops are made frequently for photo opportunities and information about the farming, history and scenery. In winter most tours are riding through the snow as the quads reach the upper mountain levels!
