Overview

Explore the landscape around the Franz Josef glacier and New Zealand's rugged West Coast on a 2-hour ATV tour from Franz Josef village. Take in the mountains and rainforest of the Southern Alps as you go offroad and follow paths carved by ancient glaciers paths in the wilderness. Your guide leads you through the rainforest, riverbeds, grasslands, and mud on a thrilling tour that includes use of ATV equipment and wet weather gear.

What to Expect

Once you have signed in at the office, you will be able to begin your adventure. After a short 5-minute walk down to the containers you will get dressed up in the provided wet weather gear, gumboots and helmet.

You will then have a short detailed safety brief before you will test your skills on the two test tracks. The journey will then take you through dense rainforest, riverbeds and grassland all with the back drop of the spectacular Southern Alps. There are plenty of selfie opportunities with a break halfway to give you some local information on the area.

This place is truly special, one of only a handful of places in the world where ice and forest meet in such a spectacular manner and the ATV quads are the ultimate way to view it all. The quad bike adventure is fun in the sun and even better in the rain.

Enjoy a truly memorable adventure as you ride with the guides to gain views of the Franz Josef glacier and its surrounding snow capped peaks.

Must-do in Franz Josef!

Luckily for us, it had been raining heavily in the days leading up to our stop in Franz Josef but the sky cleared the day we arrived. This made the ATV tour that much more exciting as we traversed through flooded trails through the rainforest...More

Awesome ATV tour through glacial melts, forests and views

ATV’ing through forests and glacial waters was an awesome experience. Safety is their first priority and they have you practice operating the ATV on their practice course a few times before the adventure begins. Half way through the experience, we stopped for breathtaking views of...More

I don't think there was a wight limit because if you can get on these bikes & drive decently that's what matters. These are hefty & do take some strength. Their suits fit everyone in a bulky way--covering everything so you... More
