Great fun & super friendly hosts

First of all, many thanks to Maria & Karl and also Jaime for making our day! ☺️

Beautiful day with great fun on the quad bikes. We had booked an hour and a half, but ended up being out for two Even though my boyfriend and I were on different levels, we both enjoyed the ride very much! Hills, forest, small streams and mud holes - it was a blast, even on a dry day where there is not much mud. And Karl took photos, which we got for free.

Really relaxed atmosphere - after the ride we stayed for a chat and a cup of coffee Maria & Karl are such lovely people, we really recommend this experience!

BR, Kat & Kim.


Two hours of quad biking today provided lots of fun and excitement for our family of four at this really well run organisation.

Friendly and knowledgeable, Carl and his wife made us feel safe and at ease, despite none of being experienced and the terrain being quite challenging. Beautiful scenery and lots of thrills...we would wholeheartedly recommend!

Best Quad Biking Experience Ever

Best quad experience we have ever done. We had 3 in our group who have quad biked in 3 locations in New Zealand and once in Cairns and this rates easily the best most technical fun ride we have done. One in our group was also a first timer but with great advice and guidance he did everything the rest of us did and we all left with big smiles and promises to be back. Top rated gear and wonderful, friendly hosts. The location was also a total winner with varied tracks and great challenges. Not to be missed

Loads of fun !!!

We booked a two hours ride with Karl and Maria and we had so much fun. They are very friendly and welcoming people. I had never ridden a quad bike before but they take time to explain how to do it and you can train on a track before going into the wild. When visiting New Zealand again we will def pop by raurimu and have a ride again. Def recommend it for adventure seeking people :) !
