          Where can you rent ATVs ? And how much does it cost?
          16 February 2017|
          Answer
          Response from Kirsten S |
          You can rent them directly from the Hotel, that what I did when I stayed. The price varies depending on how many days you use the ATV for. Either way i found it to be affordable and well needed.
