Calories Vs. Memories – What Do You Want This Easter?

Throughout the UK and Ireland, Quad Nation has plenty of venues at your disposal, all offering an awesome Quad Biking experience. But, that doesn’t mean to say that you have to stick to home turf to create some epic four-wheeled memories! With the Easter break right around the corner, there’s another opportunity to get your fix of action! Sure, there’s all the chocolate to look forward to, but nothing compares to the memories that you’ll create whilst embarking on an epic Quad Biking adventure! Here’s just some of the best Quad Biking venues that you’ll find across the world:

Stockton Beach Sand Dunes, Australia

What better way to catch some rays than on a four-wheeled beast! Stockton Beach in New South Wales is an explorer’s paradise, with plenty of sand dunes just waiting for you to explore, and has been the site of a plethora of shipwrecks and aircraft crashes over the years. It was even fortified during World War II in case Imperial Japanese forces decided to make an attack! With a whole host of amazing attractions to see, you’d be a fool to miss out on the action at this amazing Quad Biking venue!

Mount Teide – Tenerife, Canary Islands

Offering some of the most spectacular views that the world has to offer, Tenerife is a fantastic destination for some truly memorable Quad Biking action. At the centre of the island lies the giant Mount Teide – the highest mountain in the whole of Spain with an altitude of 2400m! You’re guaranteed to have your breath taken away as you witness some of the natural Canarian surroundings, especially when you reach the ‘Boca de Tauce’ viewpoint where there’s some outstanding views of Mount Teide on offer.

Wellington, New Zealand

New Zealand offers some of the finest scenery that you’ll find anywhere in the world, which makes it absolutely perfect for some Quad Biking action! Just a short distance away from its capital Wellington, you’ll find a perfect Quad Biking destination, with plenty of rugged coastal environment at your disposal whilst you’re on board a four-wheeled monster! There’s plenty of challenging landscapes for you to take on, everything from native bushland to a sparse Alpine environment. You’ll even get the chance to see the seal colony that calls the New Zealand coastline home – what could be better than that?

Conclusion

If you’re looking to create memories rather than indulge in too much chocolate this Easter, then you can’t go far wrong by taking a trip abroad and visiting one of Quad Nation’s top overseas destinations for Quad Biking!

January’s Venue of the Month is Quad Biking Kendal!

Want to know the good thing about this terrible weather we’ve had over Christmas? Our Quad Biking venue’s got a lot muddier! With so many adrenaline-seeking petrol heads taking advantage of this chaotic weather, we’ve had an overflow of amazing reviews – especially for our January Quad Biking venue of the month, Kendal!

Spread across 300-acres, our Quad Biking venue in the heart of the Lake District has been home to non-stop action over the Christmas period! This Quad Biking experience allows you to get behind the wheel of our super powerful Yamaha 350cc Grizzly quads, a vehicle capable of reaching top speeds in a matter of seconds.

Those top speeds aren’t hugely necessary though, you’ll be more reliant on the robust nature of the Quads as you aim to overcome the muddy bogs, the high angle hills and the challenging bumpy woodland tracks that aim to remove you from the comfort of your seat! This gigantic venue is sure to provide you with an immense amount of challenges and a mud-filled day out that you and your group are bound to love!

Just have a look at what some of our satisfied customers had to say about their experience!

Do You Recognise These 5 Types Of Christmas Shopper?

Can you believe it’s less than two weeks until Christmas?! ..and we still haven’t started our Christmas shopping yet!

What can we say, we’ve tried to be productive, but when it comes to Christmas shopping it just hasn’t happened. We have managed to do some research ahead of the big day though, and we’ve been busy trying to identify the different types of Christmas shopper – know your enemey and all that.. 😉

So without further ado here they are, the five types of Christmas shopper..

The Trolley Dasher

Let’s face it, we’ve all done it. You’ve left things too late and before you know it you’re charging round the supermarket stuffing anything and everything into your trolley. Merry Christmas mum, here’s that shower gel you always wanted.

The Super Shopper

The super shopper is the exact opposite of The Trolley Dasher, they did their shopping months ago and they’ve had it wrapped since September. The only thing they enjoy more than being outrageously organised is telling everybody just how organised they are.

The Let Somebody Else Do It-er

If this is you you’re probably wondering what all the fuss is about. As far as you’re concerned the presents buy themselves, wrap themselves and magically find their under the tree. It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

The One Day Wonder

Deep down we all hate Christmas shopping, but The One Day Wonder really hates Christmas shopping, and that’s why they’re not coming home until they’ve bought every last present. It could take 2 hours, it could take 12, as long as it’s done in a single day they really don’t care.

The Christmas Crafter

Everybody knows a Christmas crafter. They’re the type of people who watched Kirsty’s Handmade Christmas (great show by the way) and thought, yeah I can do that. Well, we hate to be the ones to break it to you, but you can’t! We don’t want your homemade Christmas chutney, we don’t want your knitted baubles, and unless you’re six years old we don’t want you to make our presents. Sorry.

What type of Christmas shopper are you? Let us know in the comments below, or if you’re still in search of the perfect present head over to the Quad Nation website!

Men – What We Really Want For Xmas..

We don’t want to panic anybody but we’ve just scoffed the fourth choccy from our advent calendar and had a horrible thought..

No, not that we’re piling on the pounds already, something much scarier than that. There are only 21 days until Christmas!

It’s OK, there’s no need to panic, we’re guessing you’ve got most of your shopping done by now right? What! There’s still one person you’re stuck with. Let us guess it’s a bloke.. don’t worry we’ve got this, here’s what us fellas really want for Christmas..

A box set..

It could be his favourite action movies, it could be the latest Hollywood blockbuster, but whatever you choose you just can’t beat a box set. Christmas is the perfect time to spend as much time on the sofa as possible and with the right box set you won’t be moving for some time.

Quad biking kit..

Whether it’s for your dad, brother, boyfriend or husband, if they’re quad biking crazy they’ll love getting their hands on some new kit. Don’t worry we’re not expecting you to blow the bank and buy them a quad bike or anything, just some riding gloves or boots will do the job nicely.

Lots and lots of chocolate..

Stuffing yourself with as much chocolate as possible is a Christmas tradition and most blokes are more than happy to join the fun. There’s no such thing as too much chocolate, but if you’re really concerned about their expanding waist line you could always go for a chocolate orange. They count towards your five a day right?

A shiny new gadget..

Deep down most men are just big kids, and like kids what we really want for Christmas is the latest new toy. When it comes to gadgets they don’t even need to be expensive either, in fact usually the more pointless and likely to break they are the better!

A quad biking experience..

Let’s face there’s only one thing we really want for Christmas. Yep, the only thing better than new quad biking kit.. a quad biking experience! Nothing comes close to the rush of heading out on an off-road adventure and with the UK’s best all terrain action at your fingertips, a Quad nation voucher makes the perfect present.

We hope that helps, but if you’re still short of ideas there’s only one place to be: quad-nation.co.uk

 

Scientists Have Discovered The Perfect Christmas Present..

We’re going to go out on a limb here and say you probably can’t remember what you got for Christmas last year..

It’s OK, we don’t think anyone can! Unless you got something really awesome (like a Quad Nation voucher) the chances are it got stuck in a draw and forgotten about by Boxing Day!

The same applies for all those gifts you spent hours searching the shops for, and that’s why we think quad biking experiences make the perfect present. After all, who’s going to forget the time they headed out on a off-road adventure?

By our own admissions we’re ever so slightly biased though, so thankfully there’s some proper scientific research to back up our belief that quad biking is the ultimate gift. A recent study by San Francisco State University found that people who spent money on experiences (rather than material possessions) were happier and believed their money had been better spent. So just giving a gift experience is guaranteed to make you feel awesome.

The brain boxes at SFSU aren’t alone in their findings either. Dr. Thomas Gilovich, a psychology professor from Cornell University in New York believes that experience gifts are more memorable because they have a greater impact on your life – and with 20 years worth of research to fall back on we’re not about to argue!

The doc’s got a point though, anybody who’s been lucky enough to blast through the countryside on a quad bike knows just how unforgettable it is.

It doesn’t take a doctor to work out that exploring the great outdoors is far more exciting than anything you’ll find on the high street though. So forget buying more clutter this Christmas, there’s only one gift that should be under your tree – and according to science it’s a Quad Nation voucher!

We’re Ready For Black Friday, Are You?

The countdown is almost over, the best Black Friday deals are nearly here!

But what’s all the fuss about? Well, Black Friday is traditionally when shops and retailers move into the black, meaning they can offer their best deals and still make a profit – and there’s some serious bargains to be had.

Forget trailing round the shops though,  you’ll find the best Black Friday offer right here at Quad Nation, and you definitely won’t have to fight your way through the crowds to get your hands on this incredible deal.

Now, we don’t want to give away too much before the big day, but our Black Friday offer will feature our incredibly popular gift boxes. So to whet your appetite, here’s a sneak peek at what’s inside..

Your Quad Nation Voucher – The pièce de résistance, valid at more than 65 the UK and Ireland’s most spectacular quad centres, and redeemable against any experience listed on the Quad Nation website.

The Adrenalin Guide – A glossy guide dedicated to the world’s most exciting activities and experiences. Every page is bursting with facts, figures, hints, tips and trivia.

Your Redemption Instructions – A simple step-by-step guide to redeeming your Quad Nation voucher as quickly and easily as possible.

The Info Sheet – This is where we like to share all of our expert quad biking knowledge. From tresk and trails, to hints and tips, you’ll find it all on your info sheet.

And.. If you’re really lucky we might even throw in a few festive sprinkles, but as things can get pretty hectic here at Quad Nation HQ we have been known to forget!

Now you know what’s in the box, all that’s left to do now is wait for our Black Friday offer to go live and find out what else we’ve got up our sleeves! To be the first to get your hands on this awesome deal head over to the Quad Nation website at midnight tonight..

 

 

Congratulations to November’s Venue of the Month, Quad Biking Ashcombe!

Forget Christmas shopping, there’s only one place to be this winter and that’s churning up the mud at November’s venue of the month, Quad Biking Ashcombe!

Hidden in the heart of the spectacular Devon countryside, this one-of-a-kind quad centre is the perfect place to escape the chaos of Christmas, but that’s not why we’ve named them our venue of the month. The real reason Ashcombe Quad Biking have scooped top spot is because we’ve been absolutely inundated with fantastic reviews of late, and it’s easy to see why..

With a whopping 12 miles of all terrain tracks to explore Quad Biking Ashcombe is home to one of the most epic off-road adventures in the country. One minute you’re winding through woodland, the next you’re splashing through puddles, nowhere is out of bounds on this awesome all terrain adventure. All that challenging terrain is perfect for pushing a quad bike to its limits too, so if you’re ready to find out what these beasts are really capable of Ashcombe Quad Biking is the perfect place to head off the beaten track.

It’s not just the trek that makes a trip to our awesome Ashcombe venue special, almost every review we receive also mentions the hard-working team of staff and instructors. With years of experience to call on they’re always happy to welcome riders of all abilities and experience levels, and with their help you’ll be ready to overcome even the biggest off-road obstacles.

Throw in first class facilities such as changing rooms, conference facilities, showers and spectator areas and it’s hardly surprising that everybody loves Ashcombe Quad Biking! Don’t just take our word for it though, here’s a sample of some of their most recent reviews..

“Great time had by myself (an experienced rider) and my girlfriend (a novice). The terrain was varied and fun. We will rebook next year and take the kids.”

Nick – Quad Biking Ashcombe – 11th November 2017

Say No To Socks & Yes To An Off-Road Adventure This Xmas!

We know it’s not exactly breaking news, but nobody wants socks for Christmas. They don’t even come close to the excitement of an off-road adventure, and that’s why this year we’re saying a straight no to socks.

It’s not just socks we’re saying no to though, we’ve declared war on all those boring Christmas presents that get chucked in a draw as soon as Christmas is over. We want something as exciting as tearing through the countryside on a quad bike, and luckily we know the perfect present.. 😉

Like all the best quad bikes, Quad Nation Vouchers are completely custom built – and they’re just as exciting as an ATV too! You choose the value (from £25), the message, and the gift wrap, making this incredible gift 100% one-of-a-kind. It’s the personalised message that really gives you a chance to put your stamp on things though, and over the years we’ve seen it all, so don’t be afraid to let those creative juices flow.

As if getting your hands on a Quad Nation voucher wasn’t exciting enough the lucky recipient will also have the choice of over 65 different quad biking venues. From quad centres hidden in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, to all terrain treks that take in views of the spectacular Yorkshire Dales – they’ll have the perfect opportunity to explore some of the country’s most rural regions.

Still not convinced? Quad Nation Vouchers are even easier to wrap than socks! You can either print them out at home and slip them into a card, or if you’ve chosen a gift wallet or gift box they’ll arrive at your door perfectly presented and ready to wrap. You can even leave it as late as Christmas Day to order your vouchers. They’ll be sent straight to your email inbox and nobody will be any the wiser – the perfect crime!

We know what we’d rather get our hands on, don’t you? Order your Quad Nation gift vouchers here and give the gift of an unforgettable off-road adventure.

“I had an awesome time, it was my best Christmas present ever.”
