Tour de Cycle Wine Tour Hawkes Bay – Self Guided




This 5 day/4 night self guided cycling itinerary ‘Tour de Hawkes Bay’  will suit those looking for easy outdoor activity and to experience the best that the gorgeous Hawkes Bay region has to offer.

For wine lovers, the cycling on Day 2 is the highlight, as you will be picked up from the Gimblett Gravels Appellation at the end of the day so you can enjoy the many cellar doors (about 11) without having to cycle home to your accommodation!  Ride the river trails in the morning then enjoy the afternoon at the wineries.

This is a self-guided tour, but support is never far away. A support vehicle is available on call and we arrange everything for you so you can cycle, relax and enjoy your holiday. There is a total of 4 days of cycling, with more than 80% using the off road, easy Hawkes Bay trails.

It was an amazing tour with beautiful scenery, fantastic accommodation and amazing meals. We were not regular cyclists and we managed the distances comfortably.  The lunch platters were incredible and the dinners at night were all different and all delicious.  I couldn't think of a better way to take in the sights of such an amazing place. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who has a love of the outdoors, a bit of exercise and sampling delicious food and wine. It was a very well organised tour and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly.
