Sustainability and Safety in New Zealand


New Zealand is known for its clean fresh air and pristine landscapes, and we want to help keep it that way. We are the only motorcycle company in New Zealand that is a Qualmark Endorsed Tourism Operator has earned a Qualmark Enviro Award for environmental commitment. Qualmark is the official Tourism New Zealand quality agency that reviews tourism operators and accommodation providers.

We are also the only motorcycle tourism operator that is carbon neutral. To support eco-tourism, we plant twice the amount of trees each year than is necessary to offset our carbon emissions. We carry containers for recyclable materials in our tour support vehicle and use environmentally friendly products to clean our motorcycles and mini-bus.


Safety is paramount, which is a one of the many reasons why Paradise Motorcycles is a Qualmark endorsed activity. Your accommodation on the night before your tour and at the end of the tour is booked as part of the package. So no one has to ride fatigued on the day they fly in. We also provide bike familiarisation and a safety briefing on what to expect on New Zealand roads, before you start your journey.

Our fleet of motorcycles are main dealer maintained to the highest standards. Self-guided motorcycle tour riders are provided with a GPS that has their route pre-programmed, and a mobile phone comes with each motorbike if required. All of our tour guides are fully trained first-aiders who carry a satellite phone for emergencies, and every tour package includes 24-hour roadside assistance and comprehensive motorcycle insurance.

At Paradise Motorcycles, we want to provide you with a safe holiday, with minimum environmental impact, so future generations may enjoy New Zealand as we do.

  • From day one when the limo collected us from the airport it was a holiday we would cherish for the rest of our life. Everything we did and were involved in showed someone had put a lot of thought into making this holiday one they would like to go on. The bike was new and gleaming, they all gleam when you start out, 4000 km plus of glorious unbelievable scenery and experiences later, they had got dirty but it’s actually a veneer of fantastic memories. Wifey was as enthusiastic as me and even enjoyed her days in the air conditioned bus that carried our luggage about on the one day it rained, one of the best riding days, and on the days she let me ride the best motorcycle road in the world solo. It left me speechless and euphoric!
