Enjoy an 8-day exploration of Hawke's Bay on this luxury tour. Take an easy cycle discovering coastal communities, nature reserves and beautiful scenery. Visit New Zealand’s oldest winery, The Mission Estate, and experience superb accommodation at 5-star lodges with exceptional dining.

Traverse the local cycling trails, mainly off-road in stunning settings with a generally flat gradient which can be made even easier by the addition of an optional E-bike to your tour. Pedalling past rivers, through woodland and along coastal paths, you'll visit historic Maori sites, wineries aplenty, rural pubs and other attractions.

With ever-changing terrain, the tour will take you through fertile scenes with abundant local produce proliferating the view, from bursting orchards to plentiful wineries to working farmland and the friendly, sometimes frisky (!) cattle that may accompany you on your pleasant ride. Stop at the world acclaimed Ngatarawa Gimblett Gravels appellation and indulge yourself with a plethora of cellar door tastings and a comfy transfer back to your lodgings with a superb meal waiting for you.

With two days off the bike factored into the tour, you'll spend one of them enjoying a 4-hour private car tour showcasing some of the wonderful characters and attractions of the region. The other rest day is at the atmospheric Cape Kidnappers and includes a complimentary massage at The Farm Spa along with a fantastic a-la-carte dinner that night. 

Experience a tour of exceptional beauty, comfort, wildlife and peaceful tranquillity as you enjoy leisurely biking Hawke's Bay and discovering the many pleasures this region has to offer.
