Escape Adventures is a small New Zealand based company who offer services on the Heaphy Track and in Golden Bay and beyond for bikers. We are passionate about
riding our bikes and driven by the reward that comes from creating and
leading the sort of biking holidays that will touch your soul and you
will remember forever.
Escape Adventures was born in 1999 with a single trip in Kenya and
Tanzania and a single biker on board. In the following years our Kenya
and Tanzania trip has evolved and grown. We have taken the time to fine
tune the trip and now days we lead 6 trips during the East African dry
season. With more of our bikers keen to return for another adventure
with us, and our keenness to explore new places - we have since
developed trips in Uganda, Chile, China & Tibet, Mexico and a summer
season here at home in New Zealand.
The concept of Escape Adventures' trips is an organised relaxed atmosphere that
feels like a group of friends on tour; except that we have researched
biking routes and nurtured relationships along the way to ensure
that you can truly immerse yourself in the places we visit. Our job is
to bring you up close to a country and its people so that you can
experience first hand and make your own unique personal encounter...
Escape Adventures biking routes are made up of a range of dirt, 4 wheel drive and
paved roads and tracks - suitable for anyone with a good fitness level.
Our biking trips are guided and catered by us, and fully vehicle
supported so you can experience the best of the local landscape, people,
culture and wildlife with the comfort and security of a vehicle to
carry all of your gear, or you if you need a break from the saddle.
Our groups are small with a maximum of 10 bikers (plus Escape Adventures crew)
to ensure that your experience is a personal one and so that we minimise
our impact on the environments and communities we visit. Small groups
also mean that we can offer the best of ourselves, always provide fresh
and healthy meals, and keep our equipment in top condition.
When we create a new trip in a new destination we spend time working
with the local people to develop our itinerary, one that fits with our
concepts of a great biking adventure and gets us into the most awesome
and interesting parts of the country we visit.
