On Yer Bike! - 4WD Bike Adventures

Have you ever wondered what the heart of the rainforest looks like, off the beaten track? On Yer Bike Adventures has spent 20 years creating off-road paradise through their privately owned native rainforest. They have carved trails through their forest, carefully retaining the natural character of the area, where you will see huge trees, gorgeous views of the river valley, ferns and mosses that line the tracks. No need to worry about keeping clean as they'll supply boots and protective clothing to keep you dry.
The adventures are on demand, 7 days, and the vehicle fleet includes quads, 1, 2 and 4-seater buggies, kid's quads and the mighty Hagglund.

Kiwi Rail TranzAlpine Scenic Journey

Address: Troup Drive, Addington, Christchurch 8011, New Zealand

One of the world's most famous train journeys takes you on a spectacular route from Greymouth to Christchurch, past Punakaiki Pancake rocks, wild rivers, glaciers, a thick native forest, alongside the chiseled alpine landscape of the Southern Alps, deep into the gorge sides of the Waimakariri River and along the plains of the Canterbury farmlands.

A 10-minute drive south of Greymouth you'll discover a recreated gold rush town based on the 19th century settlement that once existed on the West Coast. Dedicated to preserving the town's unique history, Shantytown provides lots of attractions including the Kaitangata, a restored engine which takes you to your very own gold panning experience (where you get to keep your winnings) and back to the pub where you can finish off with a cold one. Cheers!
