Sustainability and Safety in New Zealand

Sustainability

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

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.

  • 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.
