What Our Clients Say?

We think we’re pretty special, but don’t take our word for it, read what many of our customers think of us.

Amazing day out to middle of nowhere What a brilliant way to start an adventure ride. Had to wait out the weather yesterday but we were so lucky to fly into Rogers Hut today to start the Moerangi ride. The team were super helpful and kept us informed throughout whilst we waited to get a fly day. They met us at the end and had a beer waiting. The Moerangi ride is a must do for anyone wanting to be out in the middle of nowhere in amazing bush. Don't be fooled by the distance. We did 22km from Roger's hut and it took some energy. You need to be fit. The experience to helicopter in just adds to an excellent day out. Operators very professional We had an awesome time. We are now looking at planning our next adventure with Helibike Rotorua.

Myself and my biking partner tracked down Dave and HeliBike Rotorua. We were greeted by Claudine who gave us ten star service. We were shuttled to a brilliant chopper and dropped at a remote hut for a once in a lifetime experience. We are fit riders but we did find it tough in parts. We will never forget our forest adventure. So much thanks to Dave Ross Claudine and Tony. We truly experienced top class NZ hospitality and adventure.



"I have had the good fortune and privilege to ride bikes - on and off road - all over the world - South Africa, Australia, France, Italy, Spain, U.K. .... and beyond. In all of those adventures I have rarely come across as good a trip as the one we enjoyed from Heli-bike Rotorua. It was simply outstanding and a bit of once in a lifetime experience!
The arrangements for the one day excursion were straightforward. The helicopter flight into the Whirinaki unforgettable (for the right reasons!) and the trail riding and native bush simply superb. Although I am from the UK I have spent a lot of time in NZ and out on the trails here - and this is one of the best areas of bush I have ever seen.
David arranged some local riders to join us which was hugely appreciated especially by the relatively inexperienced members of our small group. Overall, this definitely gets 5 stars - just do it!"
