Our Packages

Multi Day Packages

To make it easy for you to come cycling on the Great Taste Trail, we have packages to suit each of our Gentle Cycling itineraries. When we book a package for you that includes accommodation, you pay no more than if you booked the accommodation yourself. And you have the peace of mind of knowing that all the other little details are taken care of too, so you can just enjoy the ride.  We’re here to help, so if the services you need aren’t here, just ask.

Accommodation:

Our A Little Bit Special and All Sorted Packages include accommodation and we have been out and about along the trail to find the best accommodation in each village. It includes motels, B & Bs & en-suite cabins.  The accommodation we have chosen for you is close to the trail and close to cafes for meals. Package prices start at en-suite cabin shoulder season rates. Most packages include options for different levels of accommodation and if we are booking for you, we will discuss that with you before confirming the final price of your package.

The Good Things Maps:

The Gentle Cycling Good Things Maps are included in the A Little Bit Special & All Sorted Packages. They illustrate our exclusive recommendations for detours off the trail to visit all our favourite places. For the adults, it includes tips for the best local food, wine, craft beer, art, history and landscape. And for the kids, we’ve thought of the fun things along the trail that will add something special every day. So everyone can enjoy the journey.

Luggage transfers:

Due to health and safety concerns, the maximum bag weight for our luggage transfers is 15kg. We can provide secure storage for extra luggage at our base.

Park Day Option:

Our itineraries are designed to make it easy for you to add a Park Day to your trip.  Stay a night in Kaiteriteri, then go out into the park the next day. We will arrange your transport from Kaiteriteri back to Nelson, or to the airport. Book your Wilsons Abel Tasman trip with us and you pay the same price as when you book it yourselves, plus, you receive a complimentary picnic lunch for your Park Day. See our Bikes and Services page for more information on our recommended Abel Tasman trips.
