Your day trip starts with pickup in Adelaide by luxury vehicle for the approximate 30-minute journey south of the city to McLaren Vale, one of Australia’s top wine regions, known for its production of shiraz. Receive a brief introduction to the bike tour before hopping on your high-quality mountain bike and taking off with your experienced guide.
Pedal through Kuitpo Forest, home to abundant radiata pines that keep the path shady, and cycle along parts of the Kidman Trail. Because your tour starts from one of the highest points in the region, you can enjoy a leisurely ride down Willunga Hill while you admire scenic vineyard views. Pass by wineries surrounded by vine-covered slopes, and stop at two wineries for wine tastings. If you purchase any bottles of your favorite varietals, they can be transported in the tour vehicle. Additional stops may also be made depending on time and the interests of your group.
Lunch is provided from a mix of produce and other items from local farms, giving you the opportunity to enjoy more of the region’s culinary delights. Then continue by bike to your final stop, which you may choose as a group with your guide. Perhaps you’d like to try beer instead of wine with a visit to a local microbrewery, for instance. If your legs are too tired to go on at this point, you may hop in the tour vehicle. At the end of your bike ride, you and your purchases will be driven back to Adelaide for drop-off at your hotel, where you just might feel like uncorking one of your new bottles to toast your McLaren Vale adventure.
