  • We did a 2.5 hour ride on quadbikes with Peter and it was an experience we'll never forget! He was a great teacher and reassuring with learning to use the quadbikes. We got to see some amazing scenery...  more »
  • Eugene was a fantastic guide & we thoroughly enjoyed our quad biking experience. Quite a challenging but fun track for someone who has never been quad biking before.  more »

  • Hired a mountain bike, bike seemed new & ran very well. Definitely need more than 1 hour around here though :)
  • Ross, the manager and fixer of bikes saved our bacon. We arrived in Hanmer from Sydney, only to find 2 of 3 bikes trashed by Qantas. We were planning on being in New Zealand only four days, three of which were supposed to be on the Saint James bike trail. He used good old common sense and amazing ingenuity to get us on the road for an amazing adventure. He even leant us some tools, took no details, and relied on our honesty to return them. True salt of the earth guy.
  • Get the e bikes and head off to see the great tracks around hanmer
  • Had good fun doing some rafting here, but it was much more relaxed than we expected (not for the adrenaline junkies). It ended up being more of a float down a river with the odd small bump. The woman in the booking office was surprisingly unenthusiastic about her job, and ended up accidentally booking us the wrong activity (which was ok as the activity centre fixed this when we arrived). The woman leading the rafting was very enthusiastic and fun, and made the day more enjoyable. When we booked we were told we would get a jet boat ride back to base after rafting, however this was cancelled due to weather. Obviously this isn't their fault, but it would be nice to know in advance if the weather looks a though things may get cancelled (we booked the evening before... Less than 24 hrs from us doing the activity). Make sure you look online to get vouchers for these activities as there are plenty available. If you're after an adrenaline activity, perhaps try the quad biking or bungy... However we intend to go to Queenstown on our next adrenaline adventure.
  • Rang to book shuttle to the snow mid snow season only to be told it has changed to weekends service only. Website not updated and unable to offer any alternative options. Very disappointed
