This full day cycle adventure will take you through stunning scenery along the Great Taste Trail. With plenty of fun stops along the way, this is the perfect opportunity to see the sights while also experiencing the vibrancy of Nelson and Mapua, and everything in between!
Starting in Nelson, receive your tour brief while being fitted with your bike and safety equipment. Then hop on and head off towards Mapua on Tasman's 35km Great Taste Trail. Along the way you'll pass the World of Wearable Art exhibition and a host of local pubs, wineries and craft breweries. It's the perfect spot to relax, catch your breath and grab a bite to eat.
Try some bird spotting on the Waimea Estuary and amongst the rural setting which is home to a range of internationally significant bird species including the white heron. The path then takes you across the Waimea Swing Bridge and on to Rabbit Island. Once you're here you can take the plunge into a freshwater swimming hole or kick back on the sandy beaches of the island.
Setting off again, take a short trip across the channel on the iconic Mapua Ferry to Mapua wharf where you can get amongst the vibrant local atmosphere before meeting for your transfer back to Nelson.

RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
