Great Cape Escape
- Duration: 6 Hours
Leaving from our shop, you will cycle along the beautiful coast and through wetlands, before arriving out to the coastal wineries. Reward yourself with wine tasting and lunch at a winery (Clearview Estate and Elephant Hill are exceptional), or experience a quintessential kiwi meal of fish and chippies on the beach. Enjoy the views of Cape Kidnappers and perhaps take a stroll along the beach before Bob the Bike Bus arrives to return you to Napier.
There are four wineries here you can visit (see below). Opening days and hours for these vary, we will do our best to notify you of what wineries will be open on your ride.
Beach House Wines (only open Summer weekends)
Te Awanga Estate
If you wish to have lunch at one of the wineries, we recommend making a booking as they are very popular. Please get in touch with us if you would like help planning times, or if you wish us to book for you.
