QQuad bikes, or all-terrain vehicles, are a great mode of transport for doing sightseeing off the beaten track. They can take you further, faster than your feet can, and they can access places that ordinary road vehicles can’t. And they are super fun. If you are interested in touring in a different and exciting way, these quad-biking adventures might be just the thing for you...

Halfway through the ride, you will pause for drinks and your guide will share some historical information about the town. You also have the option to ride as a passenger on someone else’s bike if you don’t feel up for too much of a challenge.
