Experience the tranquillity of the countryside, hop gardens, vineyards, orchards, majestic rivers, and the stunning backdrop of Kahurangi National Park.

The majority of the route passes wineries as well as artisans’ studios and galleries. The detailed route notes will help you find hidden gems and carefully selected locations where you can taste the best food, wines and beers in the region. You'll find you're never too far away from a coffee stop or somewhere to offer light refreshments on this lovely itinerary.
