1. Cycle Tasman's Great Taste Trail
Tasman’s Great Taste Trail is a scenic urban and coastal cycle trail that can easily be broken up into bite-sized pieces for short morning rides and afternoon adventures. The trail weaves through and around the coastline, offering stunning views of Tasman Bay and the Western Ranges. You can stop off for a refreshing drink at a boutique winery or craft brewery, enjoy some delicious local fare, admire the work of the regions talented artists and even watch glassblowing in action! The town of Mapua is connected with Rabbit Island by a ferry that transports passengers and their bikes across the bay on scheduled daily sailings. Docking at the Mapua Wharf is the perfect excuse to let down your hair and enjoy some waterfront dining, or explore some of the cool-store shops and galleries. Top tip: for keen riders wanting to continue on the trail, we recommend a rejuvenating overnight stay in Mapua!
