Overview

Admire some of the most inspiring scenery found on Tasman’s Great Taste Trail, and embark on a fantastic sailing experience in Tasman Bay on this one day Abel Tasman Cycle and Sail Adventure. Our partner in Nelson will equip you with a bicycle and cycle equipment, making it convenient for you to enjoy a marvellous day out – spending the first half of the day cycling and the latter half sailing, or vice versa. Take advantage of this arrangement to see more of Mapua seaside village where you may stop for great food.

There are four options to choose from depending on which direction and what locations you would like to take to suit your schedule. You can choose to cycle in the first half of the day and return by sail in the latter half, or sail and then cycle!
