Tour Overview

24 Days of the best motorcycle touring in New Zealand

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 explore Lake Taupo, & Taranaki & Tongariro National Parks. 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’ll also enjoy an unforgettable overnight cruise in NZ’s largest fjord - Doubtful Sound. We’ve squeezed in four 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. 

Overall you'll be travelling over 5000 kms in total, and boy what a ride!
