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.

This self-guided cycling tour is a great introduction to Hawke’s Bay—New Zealand’s surf-heavy, wine-friendly western North Island coast. It’s a 25-mile (40-kilometer) loop trail that starts at the historic port area of Ahuriri and passes Napier’s Art Deco buildings, inland riverbanks, pretty countryside, wineries, and a wildlife reserve.

Cycle through the countryside as the sun sets over the Hawke’s Bay on this tranquil small-group tour that takes you out of the stuffy tour buses and cramped minivans. Stop by a local winery and sample the fruits of their labor; get remarkable twilight photos of the native birds and sprawling scenery at the Ahuriri Estuary; and top off the night with a beer or wine in the charming suburb of Ahuriri, nestled in the crook of the Port of Napier.

Active travelers will love this half-day self-guided mountain biking experience in Napier. The 46 miles (75 kilometres) of trails at the purpose-built Pan Pacific Eskdale Mountain Bike Park are suitable for varying levels of ability. You’ll be kitted out with all the gear and safety equipment you need, then allowed to explore the trails at your own pace.

Popped in to ask about e-bike hire for just a couple of hours, to which the response was ‘no problem’, and with minimum fuss and admin, we were in our way. Kiwi customer service at its best! Thanks
