Back Country Farm Experience

What is this 4WD farm tour?

This is a one-hour 4WD tour of Agrodome’s 350-acre working farm in Rotorua, taking visitors on an off-road, exclusive tour of areas not normally open to the public.

Called the Back Country Adventure, during this ride you will travel through swamps, orchards, cattle and sheep pasture, and check out a working wool shed. There are also steep hills to get the heart pounding just that little bit faster!

Hold on tight as these vehicles traverse almost anything – ideal for accessing some truly incredible panoramic views of Lake Rotorua and Mt Ngongotaha.

Grab the padded hand rails and buckle up in our comfy seats – we’ll have you taking on the terrain in style. Half doors and shoulder rests will help keep out the mud (not promising!) without restricting your view.

This is as true a back country experience as you can get. Hosted and driven by a real Kiwi farmer, you’ll tour the wider reaches of the property on a powerful 686cc Yamaha Viking VI.
