What a fantastic trip. We were in Whangamomona and noticed a trip to the Bridge to Somewhere being promoted - on the roadside with the ATV. We had already been there earlier in the day by car - a long trip from Whangamomona. so we went on a 1 hour trip to a couple of tunnels on the old Whangamomona... More

We did 2 hour ATV beach trip. 3 adults and 2 teen boys in 2 Can ams. Warrick was very obliging and after short drive to the beach through dunes and forest, the boys were allowed to drive along forest tracks and the beach. Tracks were bumpy but the seats had individual suspension and seatbelts so it wasn't uncomfortable. Trip... More

We had a brilliant time on our off-road adventure. The off road vehicle was amazing and we loved driving around the hills on the farm land tour. Warrick was a great driver and was really friendly! Would definitely recommend this company and we will do it again if we are ever back in the area. Thanks for a great afternoon!

Warwick our driver made the experience hugely enjoyable as we cruised along the coast line, bounced our way through the forest and drifted over the sand dunes!
