What You Can Expect

Full-Day Marlborough Wine Region Bike Hire

Relaxing with a picnic in the vineyard

Depending on the pick-up destination selected, your tour begins with a transfer from your Blenheim, Renwick, or Picton hotel to the Vine Village, where your rental bikes will be waiting for you. Equipped with a map of the wine region and wineries, set out along the Marlborough wine trail, stopping along the way to enjoy wine tasting at the many open Cellar Doors.

You have between 10am and 4.30pm to explore, and with over a dozen wineries all within a 3km distance from your starting point, you’ll have plenty of opportunities for wine tasting. Many wineries offer free tastings, but a few of the bigger wineries charge a small fee (around $5). Along the way, stop for lunch (own expense) at one of the winery restaurants or tuck into a delicious pre-packed picnic (if option selected).

After a full day pedaling around the vineyards, return to your starting point, where a driver will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.

Great bikes and local insight.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

This was the highlight of our entire NZ holiday! We went in September and as a result some of the cellar doors are not yet open but the guide informed us of those so we knew to avoid them. Most of the area is completely flat which makes the cycling really easy and many of the cellar doors are very close to each other. I would highly recommend going to Giesen for their platter lunch as it was amazing!! We managed to fit in 7 cellar doors during the trip and as a result our cycling was a bit wobbly on the way back!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2016

Easy pick up and drop off, simple to navigate the area and Karen was incredibly knowledgeable on which wineries would suit us best. It is pretty much all flat so easy riding even after your 7th vino! Loved Huia winery and the string sustainability commitments made by vineyards in the region.
