Welcome – get in early for the 2024/25 season.

Central Otago Motorcycle Hire is set in New Zealand’s best motor cycle riding area – Central Otago and the Queenstown Lakes district.

Central Otago Motorcycle Tours are based near Queenstown New Zealand and offer a variety of motorcycling adventures in the South Island of New Zealand. The South Island of New Zealand has some of the most diverse scenery in the world with mountains, lakes, rain forest, glaciers, coastal areas, farmland, fiords and many attractions and activities to enjoy en route. All our tours are flexible and can be tailored to meet your time, budget and interests – for some of the possible variations see individual tours on the Trail Bike Tours and Road Tours tabs. Tours can be arranged for two or more motorcycles (with or without pillions). A guided tour for a single motorcycle can also be arranged, but carries a surcharge. Note we also hire motorcycles for you to set off on your own journey for 1 or more days. See Tour S3 on Southern Scenic Road Tours to include the Burt Munro Challenge in February. Note tours can be arranged for other rallies including the Vincent County Rally (February), March Hare (March) and Cold Kiwi (ride to the North Island – September). Give us a call to discuss any or all of the foregoing.
