The strong winds meant that we couldn’t go kayaking but the e-MTB substitute was an excellent alternative. Stunning views high above the harbour, where are unbelievably easy to get to on the e-mountain bikes. My 12 yr old kept up easily, the bikes being a great equaliser for families. Certainly gives the ‘away from it all’ feel. Would have loved it to be longer.
Grevel, our guide, was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and fun. Ideal!

Thanks so much for the review, we would love you back one day to complete the sea to summit with us which is our longest route! You guys were a dream to ride with, thanks for coming and being flexible when conditions were not favourable for kayaking!

Great day
We had an awesome day, started with e-biking up the hill in the misty rain with Grevel. Lots of fun and amazing views at the top, plus a fun smooth ride downhill at the end. After a short break we headed out on the water with Hazel. The water was so calm and though it was rainy to start, before long the sun came out and it was just beautiful. We were even lucky enough to spot a couple of Hector’s dolphins in the harbour quite near us, apparently not a common occurrence. The wind picked just as we were turning back so it was a bit more of a tough paddle into the swell on the way back but we couldn’t have been luckier earlier so it wasn’t such a bad thing. Great guides on both bike and kayak, both were informative on the local area as well a generally friendly and easy to talk to, would highly recommend.

Great Morning Ride
Mar 2020
My husband and I are not avid riders but with the bikes we were able to climb up and enjoy the full view of Akaroa. The bikes were amazing and our guide kept the ride to our pace and abilities. It was a morning well spent.

Thanks for riding with us on our brand new powerful Scott Ebikes! The bikes are the latest models and exactly what you need to conquer the summit of the volcano and get rewarded with amazing views!

Exercise, Beautiful Views and Knowledge
Feb 2020
We had a wonderful day with Grevel and Jake even though the weather did not cooperate in the morning. Grevel gave us an excellent tutorial on how to safely use the ebikes and we were off climbing a mountain. Unfortunately the best views were fogged out. But we still saw some amazing scenery and had a blast. After climbing the mountain we had an exhilarating ride down it on gravel farm roads. Grevel stopped routinely to make sure everyone was together and allow us time to take in the views and pictures. After biking we were driven to the harbor where we meet Jake for some sea kayaking. Jake is a fantastic guide. Probably one of the bests I've ever had. He really knows the wildlife and geology of the area and is just an interesting person to talk to. The kayaking took us around the beautiful harbor while Jake pointed out different birds, sea life, volcanic rock formations and even let us try different types of sea weed. He also got a lot of great pictures of the group. You can really tell he loves what he does.

We had a fantastic tour with Grev on the electric mountain bike tour and with Joey for the kayaking. Communication and organisation were great. When I tried to book our preferred time, the tour was showing as fully booked, but after emailing, they were able to organise our tour in reverse and it worked well with a break for lunch in between. Highly recommended.

We had an awesome sea kayak adventure with Jake! We were blown away with his knowledge of the area, geology, history, sea and bird life and we felt totally at ease with his proficiency on the water. He also provided other advice as to what to do and see in the area. Fabulous excursion, we would highly recommend having a go

Wonderful Paddle and Pedal
Do it! You’ll love it. Just the right amount of instruction before skirting in and pushing off for a wonderful paddle and eco tour. Tremendous fun challenged only by the afternoon bike ride through beautiful scenery demanding only the effort you wanted to put into it. The e-assist bike makes keeping pace no problem and lets you keep your head up to enjoy the tour. We were ready for another lap.

I went on this trip with a really nice irish couple, and despite a flat tire at the beginning it didn’t matter in the least, as it only prolonged this fabulous excursion! The views were stunning, the climb up onto the ridge unproblematic with the high quality e-mountain bikes and the ride down along winding farm tracks a lot of fun! I can recommend this trip 100% to anyone wanting exercise combined with adventure!
