The tour will start and finish in the city of Napier where you’ll be surrounded by well-preserved Art Deco architecture. You’ll have a diverse first day as you cycle from Napier along the coastal views of Marine Parade. The scenery keeps changing and you'll soon encounter vast vineyards and visit acclaimed wineries such as Elephant Hill, Clearview Estate and Te Awanga.

Travel inland on the second day as you go west to Hastings. Amble through flat farmland and orchards before reaching the world acclaimed Ngatarawa Gimblett Gravels appellation. With hectares of vineyards surrounding you, today will be dedicated to visiting cellar doors and tasting the finest wines on offer. Some wineries that can be visited here are Trinity Hill Winery, Sileni Estates Winery and Oak Estate Wines.

On the third day, you will travel further north to Bayview where along the way you can catch locals having fun at a favorite surf beach, Westshore. There are wineries along the route as well but the highlight of today is the ride through Ahuriri Estuary. Enjoy the scenery as you cycle through this protected wildlife sanctuary for migratory birds and endangered species. Cycle inland again towards Taradale where a visit to Church Road Winery is a must-do before the day ends.

On the last day of the tour, the choice is yours on what you would like to do. You could visit the gannet colony and observe the peculiar ways of this oceanic bird through an Overland Gannet Tour with Gannet Safaris Overland. The tour is available from September to April for an additional fee and can be booked on your behalf. If that’s not your cup of tea, a relaxing time in Napier is also recommended where you can shop or go on a walking tour of the city and its history.

You'll enjoy a fulfilling 4-day tour as you explore the gorgeous region of Hawke’s Bay. At the end of the trip, you will have some incredible memories, seen unforgettable sights, devoured delicious food and brought home a couple of bottles of wine!
