Just amazing and epic! You feel like you are in Jurassic Park as you drive through the rain forest, gorge and then have just stunning views of the glacier! You can be a driver or a passenger and the quads are powerful and good fun! You drive through mud, deep streams across rocks. They give you all the gear including... More

Had an amazing time Quad Biking! Great and interesting course we rode through the jungle and rivers and uphill and downhill. I had only quad biked once before and this experience with Across Country blew the other one out of the water! Had such a great time and highly recommend!

My son and I were travelling through NZ and had a couple of days in Franz Josef. Unfortunately the weather wasn't cooperating, and we couldn't get to the glacier so we tried the quad ride. What a blast! Olivia was an awesome tour guide, and she ran us through the riverbed, across the open fields, and through the rain forest.... More

This was a fun trip but not the best bang for the buck considering it was $160 for quad and $70 for passenger. The ride would be a lot of fun for someone riding a quad for the first time. However, if you have experience on a quad, the slow pace and strict rules can make the trip rather boring.... More

Once kitted up and safety talk done we headed out on the track which took breathing views of surrounding mountains and glaciers but the muddy set tracks of the rainforest. Superb fun

We had fun puddle bashing and the views were nice but probably not $160+70 (passenger) worth of fun. The guides are lovely + helpful & safety is taken serious. all wet weather gear included :) trip consists of weaving in and out a small area on the valley floor, would be good for first timers on quad bikes but a...

This has to be one of the best things to do in Franz Joseph. Very professional and high on safety. The pre run on the Quad bike is mandatory, is fun and gives you a feeling of what you are going to experience. It also gives the guide an indication if you can handle the bike in the rough terrain.... More
