‚ÄčThis very special motorcycle tour of New Zealand's stunning South Island is what you’ve been waiting for:-
Ten days of heavenly riding
Excellent lodgings with a full brekky each morning,
Fully supported with a tour guide motorcyclist and chase vehicle for your bags. This tour has been especially designed around the legendary Easter 2018 Warbirds over Wanaka Airshow. So if you have any love for aircraft or classic vehicles this is THE bike tour for you.

Last season we ran the extremely successful special Omaka Classic Fighters tour with well known "The Bear" Peter Thoeming of Australian Motorcyclist Magazine, and this was featured recently in his magazine.  We are very grateful for 'Mr Bear's' endorsement of these tours going forward.

Imagine ..
  • Winding your way around the snow-capped Southern Alps and pristine rivers, lakes, fiords, and rainforests, on traffic-free roads full of endless sweeps and bends;
  • Riding free with a great bunch of guys and gals, all your luggage taken care of; 
  • Relaxing in quality lodgings each night, followed by a great brekkie;
  • Cruising on Milford Sound in Fiordland National Park, called the Eighth Wonder of the World by Rudyard Kipling;
  • Watching the awesome Warbirds over Warbirds Airshow from from your VIP seat with food, wine and beer on tap all day.
You'll be riding throughout the day with plenty of breaks for meals, photos and activities along the way.  Meet 'The Gang' in Christchurch the night before over welcome drinks. Next morning you'll be transferred to the SPMT base to check out your bike before the fabulous sprint towards the Southern Alps.

First up, Mount Cook National Park, home of  New Zealand's highest mountain, full of Maori legend and mystery. Next up, a visit to New Zealand's 'Motorcycle Mecca'  to see legendary Burt Munro's Fastest Indian and other superb machinery of Kiwi 'Enginuity'.  You'll be blown away by the spectacular scenic ride into the heart of Fiordland National Park to Milford Sound and magical boat cruise on Milford Sound.  Time for resting or doing more top rides at Queenstown, adventure capital of the southern hemisphere. We've allowed three nights here to really soak up the fun and festivities of the amazing Warbirds over Wanaka Airshow where we have pre-booked you the very best seats in the house!  
The Titanium Pass on Saturday 31st March is your exclusive pass giving you the ultimate in luxury at the Airshow. You are in a marquee situated directly in front of the runway with an outside seating area, including a 60 seat grandstand.  

Titanium Pass patrons will enjoy a hospitality area where you are provided with:
A continual buffet (including complimentary Continental breakfast, morning and afternoon teas, lunch and great wines and beer) from 9am to 4pm.
  • Wi-Fi and closed circuit television to watch the Airshow while partaking in local specialities.
  • A souvenir pack with dated Titanium cap and badge and Airshow programme as a collector's souvenir.
  • A voucher for free entry to Warbirds and Wheels visitor attraction (vintage cars, warbirds, art and our Founder, Sir Tim Wallis’ story).
  • You will have the opportunity to mingle with pilots in your marquee, get autographs and walk the flightline once on the Saturday or Sunday.
  • Priority Parking or transport from Queenstown to Wanaka and return.
Wanaka is a gorgeous lake-side town just an hour away from Queenstown with a great selection of restaurants, bars and activites available on the lake.  The Airfield is situated just a few kilometres away.
A further free day in Queenstown allows you to make sure you've ticked off all the boxes in this wonderful location. A thrilling ride around the Southern Lakes to the glaciers and rainforests of the rugged West Coast via the legendary Haast Pass will have you bursting for more. Yet another fabulous ride over the southern alps finally brings you back down to earth as you ride through the tranquil Canberbury Plains back to Christchurch, New Zealand's Garden City.

Recent customer review
"The tour route chosen could not be faulted by any of the riders and the riding and scenery was magical. To me this was almost the perfect bike trip, made more so by the professionalism of the guide and tour company in all aspects. This tour was a sort of annual "top end" type tour by the company and certainly met those standards.” -  Rex Steel Forster NSW
