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.

    Stop At: Rabbit island, Nelson 7081 New Zealand

    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!

    This is Kiwi Journeys most popular day out, it’s an absolute ‘must do’ when visiting Nelson! The peace and tranquillity as you cycle from gorgeous plantation forest to open farmland and around the estuaries just makes you realise how good it is to be alive.

    The journey is also a fantastic day out for the whole family! We can provide kiddie’s seats, trailers and tag along bikes so there is something for everyone. You just need to remember to bring your swimming gear to cool off afterwards!

    Duration: 5 hours
