premium Three day
Great Taste Trail Cycle Tour

From Nelson to Mapua, Kaiteriteri to Mapua and through the Moutere area, these Nelson cycle trails and countryside offer a taste of the finer things in life.

The Premium Great Taste Trail Experience

If you have a long weekend, or only a few days to enjoy Nelson’s cycle trails, this is for you. This gives you two days on the main Great Taste Trail, and one day exploring the picturesque Moutere countryside. This allows you to see places most people don’t know exist. Tranquil countryside, hop gardens, vineyards, lush orchards and majestic rivers all set amidst the backdrop of the stunning Kahurangi National Park.

Our routes give you a window into the unique artisan culture of the Mapua and Nelson area. Galleries and artist studios dot the trail, and our route notes help you to find hidden gems, delicious food, as well as the best wine and beers the area has to offer. There’s always a flat white coffee nearby too.

Day 1, Nelson to Mapua 35kms

Day 2, Kaiteriteri to Mapua 43km

Day 3, Mahana and Moutere 25 – 37km +Complimentary airport transfer at the end of the day.

This is a great way to see the region as a weekend break or part of a longer holiday. We are also happy to help you extend your stay and include a day or more in Abel Tasman National Park.

The Wheelie Difference –  We try to be as flexible as possible and work around your arrival and departure times. We also don’t mind if you have an extra piece of luggage ( or two). We don’t charge for any extra bits and pieces you may need to make your tour more comfortable, e.g. gel saddle covers! We aim to use accommodation that is within a short walk to the restaurants, so once you have arrived, you can park up your bike. Wheelie discounts available at local businesses. We live and cycle in the area and can offer personal recommendations about cycle routes and stops along the way. When people know you are a Wheelie customer, you get treated like a local.
