Heart of Biking
- Tours & Activities
The Nelson Tasman region is the heart of biking in New Zealand.
Our diverse cycle trails go through stunning scenery, are of varied difficulty, and offer fun to suit all tastes and fitness levels.
Tasman’s Great Taste Trail is 175km long with abundant eating, drinking and sleeping options along the way. Two major sections of the trail are complete: Nelson to Mapua (coastal section) and Nelson to Wakefield. The 43km Dun Mountain Trail is complete and is one of the most accessible back country alpine cycle trails in New Zealand. This trail follows a historic mining railway line.
The region also boasts road rides and other mountain biking opportunities, such as the easily-accessed Codgers and Kaiteriteri Mountain Bike Parks, and the back-country trails of the Heaphy, Rameka and Rainbow.
