About this tour

  • Mapua means ‘abundance’ in Maori and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. Situated on the Waimea Estuary right in the middle of the Tasman Bay just a 35 minute drive from Nelson City, Mapua is a magical spot to relax, enjoy fine food and drink and challenge yourself to some amazing cycling.
  • With cafes, pubs, restaurants, wine bars and a brewery, the choice of local craft beer, wine and dining options are first class.
  • Local favourites on the Mapua Wharf include locally sourced fish & chips and real fruit ice creams.
  • Situated right in the heart of the Tasman Great Taste Trail, Mapua is the perfect location to explore our amazing cycle trails.
  • These are some of the region’s most popular day adventures with stunning scenery, wineries, breweries, history and activities.

Itinerary

  • Mapua Wharf, Rabbit Island, Richmond
  • From the Mapua Wharf, the Mapua Ferry whisks you over to Rabbit Island where the peace and quiet will give you time to clear your head.
  • Spend as long as you want exploring the white sandy beaches and trails around the island or carry on cycling towards Richmond crossing farmland, a swing bridge and amazing boardwalks over the estuary.
  • It pays not to forget to visit an award winning winery or brewery for lunch along the route.
  • The best part of this ride is that it is all flat, but we can still offer you the option to take an e-bike too!
  • When you arrive we kit you out with all the equipment you need to enjoy your day.
  • We fit a detailed map to your handlebars which also highlights all the great food and beverage stops along the trail.
