V8 Trike Ride around Mt Maunganui, Papamoa & Tauranga

Join V8 Trike Tours for a unique and thrilling experience on a V8 Chevrolet trike as you explore the beautiful Bay of Plenty.

Designed and built in New Zealand, these awesome trikes are powered by 5700cc Chevrolet motors. It’s the ultimate in power and excitement. With a low centre of gravity, the trikes provide a smooth ride with an impressive grip around corners.  Registered as cars not motorbikes therefore seatbelts are compulsory not helmets.

Grab some friends and strap in for a drive around Mount Maunganui and along New Zealand’s ‘Best Beach’, Mount Maunganui. It’s been ranked one of the top beaches in the World for a reason, and you’ll get to see why.

Then, head out towards the city of Tauranga to see the beautiful waterfront. Weather permitting it’s up to one of two lookouts… Summer Hills in Papamoa, or Minden Lookout in Te Puna. On the way back, your driver will up the ante with an exhilarating ride along the expressway to feel the full force of the V8 Chevrolet trike.  . There’s plenty of highlights along the way, making it the perfect introduction to the area.

This is an experience for up to four adults to enjoy together.

Blue Creek Canyoning Adventure

Not keen on getting too wet but love abseiling?

Apart from a couple of waist-deep pools Blue Creek is a dry canyoning trip. This stunning Kahurangi canyon is deep and narrow as it was carved into a softer type of rock over many years. In some places you can touch both walls at the same time and if you look up you’ll only see a sliver of daylight. It really feels like you’re getting absorbed by the earth. If you ask your guides nicely they might even try to keep your feet dry on this one. By the end of this trip, you’ll be an abseiling pro!

Location: Kahurangi National Park
Departure: 7am from Motueka
Return: ±4:30pm in Motueka
Free pick up: Marahau, Kaiteriteri, Riwaka, Motueka, Tapawera
Nelson transport: $15 pp one way
Included: Professional guides, gear, delicious lunch, snacks and drinks, photos and videos
Minimum number of people: 3 (if they don’t have minimum numbers when you book they’ll put you on a waitlist)
Minimum age: 12
You need: Comfortable, active clothing and closed toed shoes
Season: 1 October – 30 April

What is Canyoning?

Canyoning is one of the newer Abel Tasman activities. It is a combination of lots of fun stuff all bunched into one exciting activity. Trips normally start with a walk through beautiful scenery. Then it’s time to get the rubber suits on and start making your way down the canyon. We jump off cliffs into deep pools below, slide down water polished chutes and abseil besides or sometimes even through showering waterfalls. Most of the time you’ll be surrounded by steep walls covered in moss and ferns. And of course your guides will make sure you know exactly what to do. Going on a trip is the only way anyone can get to see these stunning places and experience all the fun stuff Mother Nature throws at you.
