A tour of New Zealand is like visiting all six continents in one landmass about the size of the United Kingdom. Ride past Saharan sand dunes, dramatic mountain ranges and evergreen rain forests. See glacial ice fields, fiords and volcanoes.
The temperate climate allows for all season motorcycle touring, in summer (December, January and February) temperatures usually range from 20-30ºC/68-86ºF. The colder months (June, July and August) can see the average temperature being between 5-16ºC/41-62ºF in the North Island.
New Zealand’s flora and fauna has evolved in isolation. If you are an avid bird watcher, you can choose to meet the shy kiwi, New Zealand’s national bird, and you will definitely meet the cheeky alpine parrots known as keas, and inquisitive wekas along the way.
Take a cruise, as an optional activity and be introduced to New Zealand’s marine life. Depending on the time of year, you may see albatross, fur seals, penguins, dolphins and even whales. The Paradise Motorcycles team can even design a customised eco-tour just for you.
With a population of 4 million, New Zealand is one of the world's least crowded countries. Motorcycle tours in New Zealand allow riders to feel as if they are exploring a primeval land before time. Rich and fascinating history with colonial buildings and modern skylines, tours in NZ offer something for everyone’s taste.
Curious travellers will love New Zealand's North Island. Head out on the roads to explore its remarkable nooks and crannies and you'll be well rewarded.
Surrender to the open road and the magnificent soaring mountains, rivers and lakes that conspire to make the South Island such an extraordinary scenic stage.
My fiance and I were on the South Island tour in March of this year. The quick summary: an awesome bucket-list trip and Paradise is a fantastic organization that has the resources / experience to make sure it's an awesome experience. We were fortunate to be led by Mike & Jo ... and had a great group of diverse riders from the US, UK and Australia. I cannot possibly explain in writing the stunning scenery that you are constantly surrounded by (and riding through) everywhere on the South Island. Mike and Jo were great tour leaders and helped to build a fun social environment with all of us strangers on the trip. Really enjoyed their company and we built up a little family during this 11 day tour. We had fantastic weather on our trip and the range of experiences is unmatched.
