Wheels and Wine Tour

Book Online » Bay Tours Nelson has teamed up with local bike hire operators to provide a great new tour option for you! Our Wheels and Wine Bike Tour is a great tour for those who love to cycle in their own time and wish to see the best of what the Nelson/Tasman region has to offer all in one day! Easy contour and have lunch by the sea. (Own cost.) Then off to taste wine!

This is a fabulous way to see Nelson! We organise the bike hire and deliver it to you at approximately 9.00am (Please confirm accommodation address when booking). Our friendly and helpful staff will give you directions on how to get out to Mapua village taking in some terrific sights on the way. Much of the ride is on the stunning new coastal Great Taste Trail winding through vineyards, estuaries, sandy beach fronts and orchards.Bay Tours will meet you at Rabbit Island Beach with nibbles and wine.

The bike ride should take about two hours; it is approximately 20kms long with little/no steep inclines. Just before you reach Mapua, you board the flat bottom Mapua Ferry for a fun, short boat trip across the channel to Mapua. (The Ferry cost is included in your booking). Once you reach Mapua you will have the chance to browse the boutique arts and craft style stores and have a lovely lunch (at own cost) on the wharf overlooking the bay. (Bikes can be left at the Kiwi Journeys bike hire shop on the wharf.)

You will then be met by your Bay Tours Nelson Guide at approximately 3.00pm. From here we will take you to one of Nelsons finest award winning locally owned wineries and NZ's Oldest Pub (circa 1850) and an artisan gallery depending on your specific wishes. At the end of the tour, we transport you back to your accommodation.

What a great way to explore Nelson! Fresh air, gentle cycling, stroll the beach or have a quick paddle in the waves, flat bottom scenic ferry and some superb wines and scenery all in one day. We organise it all for you!
