Self-Guided Biking Tour of Hawke's Bay Wineries
Biking is a great way to visit wineries and explore Hawke’s Bay. With this tour, explore more than 10 miles (16 kilometers) of scenic, bike-friendly paths at your own pace, stopping at some of the region’s finest wine producers along the way. Opt for an available wine purchase pick-up service, so you won’t have to lug bottles around on a bicycle.
What to Expect

This full-day, self-guided biking tour will begin in Havelock North. You will be set up on your bike and be given a briefing on the route before you set off, cycling at your own pace to enjoy the scenery and visits to the various wineries along the way. 

Your adventure starts at the wineries of Black Barn and Te Mata Estate. It is recommend you visit the Origin Earth Cheese Factory and Tasting Room where you can sample a range of delicious cheeses.

From here you will enjoy a 16km scenic cycle on the limestone trail of the landscapes ride with views of apple orchards, vineyards and farmland following the Tuki Tuki River to the coast. 

By now you'll be ready to taste some more fine wine at Beach House Wines (summer weekends only), Elephant Hill, Clearview Estate and Te Awamga Estate.  

A restaurant lunch is available at either Elephant Hill or Clearview Estate, or casual options at various locations (lunch at own expense), before your return transfer to your accommodation. 

Your tour includes transport from either the Napier i-site or your Napier accommodation, bike helmet and pannier hire, route instructions and trail map, water bottle and a wine purchases pick up service.

Fantastic day out

Being of slighter more mature years and not having ridden a bike for ages I was a little nervous about being fit enough for the challenge. But I was assured it was easy cycling on flat trails with plenty of time to stop for wine...More
