1. Cycle the Great Taste Trail
With cycle hire available less than 5 minutes away from Stoke Central at the Nelson Airport, this township is a great place to begin your journey along the Great Taste Trail. For a truly unforgettable experience, we recommend asking for a bicycle with a wicker basket at the front (just like in the movies), and pre-booking a packed lunch from The Grand Mercure Nelson Monaco. The trail will have you weaving past an array of picturesque locations, such as the Monaco Peninsula and the Waimea Inlet, meaning that there are plenty of places for you to stop and enjoy a picnic in the shade.
