MULTI-DAY cycle tours helping you explore the best of the
Nelson Tasman region
Choose from a range of our Great Taste Trail tours that cater for all tastes and interests, a great way to really get a feel for this beautiful region and, with our recommendations, find some hidden gems off the beaten track too. Our tours can also blend with a trip into The Abel Tasman National Park or other local activities. We continually watch for what is new and what changes in the area so we can offer our guests the best experiences. Our suggestions are based on what we believe to be the best, not just what happens to be here.
We offer a range of carefully designed Great Taste Trail multi-day tours, or if you want something a bit more special or different, we can offer a bespoke tour which will incorporate your requests. Our bespoke tours can also include non-cycling days such as a cook school, vehicle based guided day tours and of course a range of options to enjoy the Abel Tasman National Park, Golden Bay or Marlborough Sounds.
We also offer our ‘Explore More’ cycle experiences that can be incorporated into a Great Taste Trail Cycle tour, or form a complete Gravel Tour. We have carefully selected gravel routes ( a mix of sealed and unsealed back roads) that take you to beautiful locations that are not on the cycle trail.
We offer cycle tours to suit all abilities and budgets. It doesn’t matter if you want to cycle 20km or 200km per day; you decide, we provide. When we know the type of cycling holiday you enjoy, we will design an itinerary to suit you or you can choose one that we have already designed and is ready to ride.
We believe that this region has so much to offer all types of cyclists and we will use our detailed knowledge of the area to provide you with the best routes. If cycling from latte to latte is your idea of an idyllic route, we know just the places. If challenging hilly routes are more your thing we can provide those too.
Our tours are unique to each group, so we can accommodate all abilities, especially a range of abilities within a group. We can even put together itineraries for groups made up of non-cyclists as well as cyclists.
We appreciate that your chosen itinerary is yours to enjoy in a way that best suits you, therefore we do not amalgamate groups. We also allocate each group their own tour manager, to take care of any questions and requests the group may have when on tour.
