What to Expect
Join a unique and exhilarating way to discover everything the Bay of Islands has to offer! Feel the rush of adrenaline as you enjoy a ride on a custom-built V8 Chevrolet Trike with an experienced driver at the helm. All you have to do is sit back, hold on and enjoy your guided 2-hour tour to experience Haruru Falls, Waitangi Lookout, Opua and the historic town of Russell.
Starting at the Paihia i-SITE, jump aboard as you take off on your thrilling adventure following the stunning coastline to Haruru Falls for a visual of the horse-shoe shaped waterfalls. Continue onto Waitangi Lookout to be rewarded with 360-degree panoramic views of the Bay and across to Russell.
From here, you will head south to Opua, allowing your driver to effortlessly navigate along the narrow and winding coastal roads getting up to speeds of 100km per hour! Enjoy amazing photo opportunities and thrills galore as you wind your way through native bushland and valleys to the seaside marina village.
Catch the car ferry across to Okiato and head onto Russell – the first settlement in New Zealand. Learn some local history as you explore Russell – passing the oldest Church in New Zealand (complete with musket holes) and experience breathtaking views. Take the opportunity for a photo behind the handlebars of the big trike, and finish with a meander through the township. You can choose to further explore Russell at your leisure, returning by passenger ferry to Paihia, or sit back and enjoy the ride back to Paihia on the trike.
Powered by a 5.7L 350 Chevrolet Edelbrock motor, these trikes are the ultimate in power and excitement and taking a ride on one is a definite bucket list experience! Due to the fact that the trikes are registered as convertible cars and come with seat belts, there is no requirement to wear a helmet, so you can enjoy the wind in your face and experience pure adrenaline.
