4x4 Self Drive 2 seater CanAm Commander
US$94.09
Overview
Take a private two-seater buggy to one of the highest lookouts in the Rotorua region on this short forest adventure. Instead of hiking up the hills and working up a sweat, enjoy a wild ride to the top behind the wheel of a four-wheel-drive buggy. Your certified guide will drive you half the way there, but you can drive the rest of the way, navigating rugged, hundred-year-old forestry tracks cut into the dense Bay of Plenty forest.
What to Expect
Come with the Adventure Playground team on an amazing 4×4 self drive, off road tour. Our Rotorua 4×4 self drive tours are headed up by one of our experienced guides in a guide vehicle, who will host you for the duration of your off road experience. You will love these, nippy 2-seater 4×4 self drive vehicles! We start your ride with a full safety briefing, before giving you a spin around our training paddock to get used to your ‘wheels’ before we start exploring 100 year old forestry tracks  and native bush. We stop at various scenic lookouts during your tour so make sure you bring your camera to capture the moment. All safety gear is provided.
