Experience the thrill of freedom…

Queenstown Hill is a high country sheep station with more than 25kms of varied trails to play on. Go off-road and explore the terrain with your expert guide. At the summit stop to enjoy a hot drink as you take in the awe-inspiring 360° panoramic views over the surrounding lakes and mountains.

Our fully automatic quad bikes (ATVs) are fun and easy to ride! Whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced rider, we will kit you out in protective clothing before giving you full training on the bikes and tailoring the trip to suit your ability.

This is New Zealand’s most spectacular quad bike ride, where the adventure is in your hands!

We will collect you from downtown Queenstown and after a 15 minute drive arrive at the base where we will kit you out in the protective clothing before explaining how to ride your bike. We provide full training to ensure you are comfortable with operating a Quad- our guides recognise that riding a quad bike for the first time can sometimes be a little nerve-racking and we pride ourselves on making riding as fun as possible for ALL levels of experience.

We operate on Queenstown hill station, a 3500 acre working sheep farm. We have over 25kms of trails ranging from beginner level through to advanced technical riding. The majority of our tours climb from our base 300 metres above sea level to the summit of Queenstown hill just under 1000 metres above sea level.

Nomad Safaris has exclusive use of Queenstown Hill ensuring that on your Quad Bike tour you get breathtaking panoramic views that are exclusively yours. Don't forget your camera as the viewpoints provide stunning photo opportunities.
