Wild Golden Bay: On Two Wheels - Cycling Trip
1 week: Nelson to Nelson (WGB2W)Nelson - Abel Tasman - Golden Bay | 7 days | cycling 20-60 km/day | hiking & sea kayaking
Golden Bay is as diverse as a patch work quilt made by your grandmother; surrounded by national parks, criss-crossed with wild rivers, dotted with a colourful community and spilling out to more stunning beaches than you can count.
We created ‘Wild Golden Bay - On Two Wheels’ so you can discover its niches and nooks while cruising by bike. Ride through the Moutere wine growing region and out to the more remote parts of our stunning region. Climb aboard a sea kayak and paddle along the beautiful Abel Tasman coastline and take a day hike in Kahurangi National Park.
At the end of each day stay in our pick of the region’s guesthouses and lodges with the ever-present hot showers, cold beers, local wines and food and at times quirky restaurants!
