Tour Overview

Come ride the length and breadth of NZ with Open Road. Starting and finishing in Auckland we’ll take you on an unforgettable ride along some of NZ’s most iconic roads. In the North Island we’ll ride the Pacific Coast Highway round the Coromandel Loop and remote East Cape, the Desert Road and the Rimutaka Ranges. Crossing over to the South Island, we’ll do all three alpine passes across the Southern Alps - Haast Pass, Arthurs Pass & Lewis Pass. Each one is a fantastic thrilling ride. We’ve squeezed in three rest days to relax and recharge but even on a rest day there is plenty to see and do. Along the way we’ll stay in outstanding hotels where comfort is key and you’ll experience great kiwi hospitality and enjoy some great Pacific Rim cuisine. You'll be travelling over 5000 kms in total, and boy what a ride!.
