Waterways to Wineries
- Duration: 6 Hours
Come and explore the beautiful Napier waterfront! Self-guided, including transport, this is the perfect tour to explore historic Ahuriri and nearby wetlands before arriving to some stunning wineries. The riding is all flat and easy, and you can visit up to 3 wineries* on this 16km ride.
Starting just across the road from our shop, you will ride along the coastal trail to the historic area of Ahuriri. Here you can visit the fabulous Urban Winery, or one of the many cafes, bars or restaurants. You then continue on limestone cycle trail through the protected wetlands that are home to a number of different bird species. Crossing back on to the concrete cycle path, there is just a short ride until you reach Mission Estate Winery and Church Road Winery. Enjoy wine tasting and lunch here before the shuttle bus arrives to transport you back to Napier.
Currently running Thursday to Monday due to winter hours at the wineries.
