Takaro Trails, self guided cycle tours of the Hawke's Bay Trails, 187km of off road cycle trails which form part of Nga Harenga, the New Zealand Cycle Trail. The trails are the perfect way for visitors to visit our world famous wineries, enjoy some gentle exercise under sunny skies and explore our stunning scenery at their own pace. Takaro is the Maori word for 'play' so put some fun into your Hawke's Bay stay and get out and about by bike!

It was a lovely day in the vineyards of Hawkes Bay. Takaro Trails provided us with water, bicycles and a map and an awesome pick up/off in Napier. Would recommend it everybody.

The owner of the bicycle shop was very accommodating and the tour guide (her sister) was very friendly and pleasant. The ride we went on was approximately 30 kilometers along a beach trail, farmlands, apple orchards, rivers and parks. The bicycles were equipped with water and side saddles for carriage and were well maintained. I would recommend this bicycle shop... More

Had a fantastic time. A group of 8 of us enjoyed a leisurely cycle on the coast route. Went to some great vineyards. Takaro Trails were very organised. They picked us up from our accommodation and had our bikes all ready. Liked the bottle of water they gave each us, a nice touch. Picked us up at the end of... More

TakaroTrails five day cycling tour of Hawkes Bay, New Zealand, was beyond all expectations; a magical mystery tour given we had no knowledge of the area at all. Vineyards, orchards, sheep and cattle along the trails and picturesque wineries with superb wines are all part of the experience. We averaged 30k a day on good bikes equipped with panniers and...

Perfect day! We had so much fun on our cycle tour. Jenny was great - really helpful and friendly. The bikes were comfortable and the scenery was stunning. Not to mention the wine! We came away with quite a few bottles which they picked up for us along the way. I also liked the door to door pick-up/drop-off. Would definitely... More

We did a 30km cycle down the coast from Napier to Clifton. We had pre-booked and everything was ready for us on arrival. We had a great afternoon on the trail which was well-marked and was off road for 95% of the journey. What we really liked was that we were picked up at the end of the trail and... More

Four mates and I have just finished the Hawke's Bay Highlights tour taking in Havelock North and Taradale and the surrounding vineyards. Marks out of 10, we give it 11. Had the best time and loved combining the easy cycling through beautiful countryside (long stretches along the ocean, others along safe bikeways through green farmland) with visits to some of...

Takaro Trails organised our three-day tour of the Hawkes Bay region. It was my first two-wheel adventure and, not being a regular cyclist, I wasn't sure what I was up for. The trails are well sign-posted (plus you get detailed directions from Takaro each morning), mostly flat, off-road or on quiet country roads with only a few bovines to dodge.... More
