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!

This day had everything! Started with a cool little market at the first vineyard. Then rode along the trails on comfortable bikes to the sea and along the trail to 3 more vineyards. Had a fantastic lunch with super service at Clearview. Ended up lying in the sun telling yarns and relaxing. Such a brilliant way to unwind and enjoy... More

We recently completed the diverse 5 day tour. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience! Jenny and her team provided outstanding service. The tour was extremely well planned and provided a sample of all the Hawkes Bay environments from coast, estuaries, wetlands to farmland and orchards. A great mix of bike trails and quiet country roads. The picnic lunch we were provided... More

Jenny organised a perfect itinery, everyone had a fabulous time. The Black Barn Vineyard market for coffee and delicious pastries fueled up the cyclists first thing, a wine tasting... More

After looking at a number of options for wine tours on bikes in the Hawkes Bay region, we settled on Takaro Trails. And we're glad we did! Great bikes and kit, and really handy that they collect you and drop you off at your hotel, free of charge. There are a number of trails to choose from depending on how... More

Had a voucher for the 35km self guided ride from Napier to Havelock North. Had a wonderful time. The cycle trail went along the coast then inland along the river. Was so much fun, the weather was perfect. Takaro Trails provided bikes, helmets, water and map and picked us up at the end of the ride to take us back... More

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
