What to Expect
You won't find a more exhilarating way to experience the Bay of Islands! Feel the rush of adrenaline as you enjoy a 60-minute ride on a custom-built V8 Chevrolet Trike with an experienced driver at the helm. As you wind along the open roads to Opua and Kawakawa, all you have to do is sit back, hold on and soak in the incredible 180-degree views from behind the handlebars.
Starting at the Paihia i-SITE, jump aboard your unique mode of transport as you take off on your heart-pumping adventure southwards. Feel the freedom of the trike as your driver effortlessly navigates along the winding coastal roads to the seaside marina village of Opua.
From here, you will head south for a 15-minute blast full of twists and turns through native bushland, hills and valleys to historic Kawakawa – home of the famous Hundertwasser toilets & Vintage railroad. There is time to explore the town and enjoy some great photo opportunities before you buckle in for the adrenaline-pumping ride back to Paihia.
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 the pure uninhibited adrenaline!
This tour departs from the meeting point at i-SITE Visitor Information Centre, Marsden Rd, Paihia
