Single Day

Tasman’s Great Taste Trail
Single Day Bike Hire

Enjoy a day of cycling on the trail, from our base among trees & old farm buildings 15 minutes from Nelson city. Choose a freedom hire or an all-inclusive self-guided wine or beer package. We are close to the craft breweries & within easy access of the wine country. Our detailed, custom-designed cycling maps & information on the opening hours of all the tasty places on the trail will ensure you have a great day. And for a no-sweat day, why not hire an E bike? They are guaranteed to put a smile on your face!

Trail damage: as of 2 February 2018 a 6km section of the Great Taste Trail Coastal Route to Rabbit Island has been closed due to an extreme high tide. This closure does not affect the route for our Great Taste Wine or Great Taste Beer trips. Click here for more information.
