A wonderful combination of cycling and a scenic tour of Tasman Bay.

The tour allows you to view Tasman Bay and surrounds by air, then soak up the tranquility of the landscape with a bike ride, followed by lunch at Mapua Village.

Depart Nelson mid-morning for a stunning scenic flight overflying Tasman Bay and west into the Kahurangi National Park for a mountain top landing at 5000 feet above sea level (weather permitting). Descend from the mountain with contrasting views back to the East before landing at a quiet location where you and your Wheelie Fantastic cycle guide start the cycle route.

Cycle through the Moutere countryside, before arriving at the quaint coastal village of Mapua. Take in the views of the estuary at a waterfront restaurant while you enjoy a lunch showcasing the best of local produce. After lunch there will be time to browse the studios and galleries and sample a gourmet ice-cream, before your return.
