Five days & five nights multi-day tours

Our 5 day range of bike tours allow our guests to enjoy the diverse characteristics of the trail and its surrounding area.

One possible itinerary:

Day 1 – Nelson to Wakefield and Spooner’s tunnel, including stop offs at cafés, the unique World of Wearable Art & Classic Car Collection, wineries, brewery and places of historical interest. (35-55kms). Beyond Wakefield is Spooner’s tunnel, which is the longest cycling tunnel in the southern hemisphere (and fifth longest in the world!). 

Alternatively focus on the Nelson city area and enjoy the art, food and landscape before cycling to the historical area of Wakefield the next day. This is a great way to use an arrival day and make the most of your time.

Day 2 – Enjoy the tranquility of the beautiful Motueka valley with its majestic river. Finish at the golden beach at Kaiteriteri. (35 – 45kms). Option to stay at Kaiteriteri for a second night to enjoy a day in the Abel Tasman National Park, before continuing on the cycle trail the following day.

Day 3 – Cycle from Kaiteriteri to Mapua. This is one of the favourite sections of the trail for both locals and tourists. The many cafés and changing scenery along this 43 km section, provide a memorable day along the trail. The vibrant village of Mapua offers lots of options for sampling the flavours of the region, with cafés, restaurants, a brewery and wine bar in the village and the wharf area.

Day 4 – Cycle to the Moutere region, enjoying quiet country back roads, vineyards, orchards, hop gardens as well as stops at studios and galleries as well as outstanding Nelson wineries and New Zealand’s oldest pub with a large selection of local craft beers. Return to Mapua and enjoy another easy evening around the wharf, with several more dining options to choose from.

Day 5 – Cycle from Mapua to Nelson (or the airport). Follow the coastal section of the trail, through Rabbit Island and along the edge of the Waimea estuary, towards the town of Richmond and then along a railway reserve to Nelson. (35kms). Alternatively you could do a circuit, finishing at Mapua, where we can arrange a late check out if that helps with your onward travel arrangements.

Have you got more time? Would you like to explore more?

We can offer other days of cycling in the quiet countryside or include a day or more in Abel Tasman National Park. Walking, kayaking or boat trips can be arranged to get you off the beaten path.
