Hawkes Bay is a stunning coastal district located on the east coast of New Zealand’s North Island. A world class wine region, complete with over 200kms (124mi) of cycling trails that are flat, safe and peppered with wineries, food and famed Kiwi scenery.

Similar in climate and wines, Hawke's Bay has been likened to the Mediterranean of the Pacific, and rightly so. Long, sunny summers and mild winters make this a year-round destination ideal for cycling. In addition, the New Zealand government and local councils have developed a network of incredible cycling trails that are flat, easy, off-road and great fun to ride. It almost goes without saying that Hawke's Bay is also a world-class wine region. Great wines come from here, and with that come great cellar doors and wineries to visit.  

This 5 day/4 night fully- guided tour of Hawke's Bay will suit those looking for a leisurely cycle ride and to experience the best that this gorgeous region has to offer. For wine lovers, the 'Behind the Scenes' tour at Church Road Winery is something to look forward to as you meet with the winemaker/s and bring home some bottles too! A sojourn into the wine district of Gimblett Gravels Appellation is another highlight as you cycle past and visit some of New Zealand's finest wineries.

Join this exclusive tour and enjoy behind the scenes wine tastings, gourmet food and premium accommodation throughout, along with a local guide and full support. We can’t think of a better way to discover this beautiful and as yet, slightly undiscovered, part of NZ.
