TheCharmedVoyager

With long, open roads and beautiful views, New Zealand

is recognised as one of the best

motorcycling destinations in the world. We take

9 Nights | 10 Days Discovering the South Island on a BMW1200RT Motorcycle

it one stage further, combining an impeccable motorcycling tour with some of our unique activities and people.

The South Island - with more kilometres of roads and fewer people - is widely recognised as the best island for motorcycling. But, as always, we are reluctant to miss out on some of the special things the North Island offers.

People with limited time are welcome to pick and choose sections of this itinerary as per their preference. As motorcyclists tend to go on trips together, we have costed this itinerary for a group of 10 motorcyclists on 5 motorcycles together with a motorcycle guide and a comfortable support vehicle with trailer driven by a second guide. We can substitute Goldwings or Harleys. For those interested in offroad motorcycles, we can put together on-road, off-road variants in the trip.

Arrive in Christchurch and meet your guides/ check your equipment. Spend the evening in the city centre.

>> Day 2 Heading to Marlborough Drive three hours north to Marlborough and The Convent.

This is a lovely rolling coastal road

where if you wish you can stop at Kaikoura and take a plane or helicopter to go whalewatching. Enjoy a vineyard meal that evening.

>> Day 3 The Winding Queen Drive across the extremely winding Queen Charlotte road before heading across to Nelson and south to Motueka River Lodge. We estimate three to four hours driving today across coastal, mountain and river roads.

>> Day 4 Along the West Coast Head south along the West Coast. Stop at Punakaiki for a walk around. End up at Franz Josef Glacier Country Retreat after a long five hour’s worth of driving. This is spectacular scenery of mountain gorges and wild coastline.

>> Day 5 The Glaciers If the weather is good, take a helicopter up to see and land on the glaciers and also see Mount Cook. Then continue south for three hours until you reach spectacular Silver Pine Lodge.
