At the start of your exciting Gozo Quad Bike Half-Day Tour, you will be picked up from your hotel on the main island of Malta, or on the smaller island of Gozo, in an air-conditioned mini-bus. An English-speaking guide will accompany you.
If you are starting from Malta you will be driven to the ferry port at Cirkewwa to catch the ferry across to Gozo (30 minutes). In summer (weather permitting) you will cross to Gozo in a powerboat (15 minutes). (If you are starting from Gozo, you will be picked up by jeep and driven to the starting point.)
At Gozo, your guide will be waiting to drive you to the start point at Qala. After some safety instructions, you will jump on your quad bike and set off on your tour. Along the way there will be plenty of stops, so you can have a rest from riding and take photos of the glorious scenery.
Your route takes you through the Simar Valley, to the village of Nadur, and on to Ramla Bay where, weather permitting, you will stop for a swim (35 - 40 minutes).
You will then go on to Xaghra and stop at the famous Calypso Cave. Legend says that this was the cave where Odysseus was imprisoned by the nymph Calypso.
After this stop you will pass through Marsalforn Bay and Xwejni Bay and see the saltpans. Dating from 1740, these are still in use, and produce several tons of sea salt every year.
Your route then continues to Ghasri Valley from where you will see beautiful views of the open sea.
This is the last scenic viewpoint on your tour. From here you will proceed to the point where you leave your quad bike, and your tour leader will then take you back to Mgarr for the ferry to Malta. Arriving at Cirkewwa, you will find the minibus waiting to drive you back to your accommodation.
At the end of your Gozo adventure, you will be dropped back at your hotel.
Please call the activity operator at least 24 hours prior to start of the tour for reconfirming departure details.
Carry your driving licence.
Wear proper shoes (not sandals or flipflops) for riding the quad bike.
In summer the tour includes a swim stop. Bring swimwear, towel and sun protection
