CHECK OUT THE AWARD WINNING
ON YER BIKE!
Rated #1 of 66 4WD adventures in NZ it is clear that On Yer Bike! is the place to be for mud-tastic off road adventure! 

The West Coast may have a reputation for it's high rainfall - (actually it's 2.5 - 3m of rain every year!), but because of all that water, On Yer Bike! has the most amazing off road quad biking and off road adventure tracks through masses of puddles, mud and thriving privately owned rainforest!

BUT - Don't stop there.  You could try a Gokart or Hagglund adventure or experience the 8WD Argo.

Cafe on site too.
