About Us

Our team at Exceptional Kangaroo Island has more than 30 years of experience in hosting people who want to explore and learn about Kangaroo Island. If you love the outdoors, learning about the natural world and want some fabulous hospitality along the way, you have come to the right place.

Exceptional Kangaroo Island

We chose our business name carefully – we want to be different to the rest and share our island home with you. We are not for everyone – typically we cater for only about three percent of visitors to the Island. We are storytellers – we want to bring the destination to life by giving you the behind-the-scenes stories and provide insights to our history, economy, community life and conservation activities. We see our role as adding depth, meaning and understanding to your visit. The E-bikes are a new addition to our services and we believe now is the perfect time to bring this opportunity to you. We know our guests really value private access, solitude, the freedom of exploring open spaces, want to get some exercise on a regular basis, and care about sustainability. Our fully-guided E-bike experience brings this all to you.

Our E-Bikes (Electric Bikes)

What’s the E in E-Bikes?

E is for Electric!

Our high-spec Kalkhoff E-Bikes have built-in electric pedal assist which helps you pedal! There is an internal gear system which provides a gradient of gear ratios and the belt drive system means there is no greasy chain to worry about. You can select from 5 power levels – Off, Eco, Tour, Sport and Turbo. The benefit is if you come as a party with varying levels of cycle fitness, the regular cyclists can back off the power and if you need a bit more of a boost, just dial it up and cruise!

The electricity comes from a large solar installation (27 kWh) at our tour base – in a typical year we generate three times the energy that we use, with the excess being put back into the local grid. This fits in with our ethos of eco-tourism – employing local people, sourcing delicious local food and wine, taking care to reduce, re-use and recycle as a core operational focus.
