This tour encompasses 3 days cycling covering the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail in almost its entirety, a relatively easy 100 km (62 mi) with only one small and gentle uphill section on the second day.  The cycling is suitable for even novice or beginner riders, and there are now electric assist bikes (E-bikes) available if you have any doubts!  This self-guided tour is fully supported with a van only a phone call away if you run into any difficulties.

Tour guests are often surprised at the quality of food and wine from the region.  The tour includes restaurant meals in the evenings, platter style feasts for lunch and full breakfasts throughout (with the all-important coffee – or tea!).  As a guest of the tour operator, there are exclusive food and wine tastings offered, e.g. food and wine pairing at beautiful Gapsted Winery on Day 3.

Enjoy the stunning scenery, sumptuous food and world-class wines on this grand gourmet tour. This is a premium tour, and although self-guided, you will be looked after from start to finish. Quality accommodation is provided, gourmet meals, all winery visits, transport and a few little extras are all included. So sit back, cycle a little and enjoy all the best of this beautiful and surprising region of Victoria.  

* Please note there is a $100 per person fee that will be added for any tours that include a Victoria public holiday including Easter, Labour Day, New Years & Boxing Day.  Tours do not run over Christmas Day due to venue closures.

** Also note that this ‘Grand Gourmet’ cycling tour of North East Victoria can be undertaken as a private tour with a guide if required, on any day or date that suits you. Please contact us if you are interested in this option.
