Queenstown Nomad Quads

Thursday, September 22, 2005

Queenstown is one of New Zealand's most beautiful destinations. It is surrounded by the Remarkables mountain range and Lake Wakatipu. It is a playground for year-round thrills.

The Remarkables range is one of two in the southern hemisphere running north-south — which is how they got their name.

Nomad Quad Safaris operates half-day tours starting at the base of Queenstown Hill. The fully automatic 400cc Honda ATV quads are easy to manoeuvre, which means you can concentrate on the breathtaking scenery, rather than changing gears!

You are given full training, provided with safety clothing and will be accompanied by an experienced guide.

The company has exclusive access to the area, which is a privately-owned sheep farm. The highest point on the Hill has amazing views in every direction.

The Shotover River is one of the world's highest gold-producing rivers and is understandably a popular waterway for jet boating.

Nomad Quad Safaris run twice daily, year round, 8.30am and 1.30pm. You are collected from your accommodation in a Land Rover Defender and taken to the bike base. After your safari, you will be returned to your accommodation.


The south of New Zealand's South Island.
