Easy and Popular Cape Winery Tour

Meet Takaro Trails at their shop in Ahuriri, Napier or they can pick you you from your accommodation. After being fitted with Bikes, information & everything else you need, Takaro Trails will transfer you to the start of your adventure at the Black Barn winery.

Te Mata Estate and Akarangi are very close by so you can start your wine tasting early! From here you enjoy a 16km cycle on the limestone cycle trail following the Tuki Tuki River, to the coastal communities of Haumoana and Te Awanga. The views are stunning as you cycle the raised stop-bank trail and look out over orchards, vineyards and farmlands. Reaching the coast you’ll be ready to taste some more fine wine at Elephant Hill, Clearview Estate and Te Awanga Estate.

If lunch is on your ‘wish-list’ Takaro Trails are happy to assist with reservations at Clearview Estate. Te Awanga also offer the best pizzas in Hawke’s Bay and you can sit outside on their green lawn.

Allow 6hrs for this tour. At the end of the day you will be collected and transferred back to Ahuriri or your accommodation if required.

Why is this Chuffed Worthy?

The cycle trail network through the Hawke’s Bay is outstanding and if you have done it yet, don’t wait. It’s leisurely, relaxed and short distances between points of interest. James from Chuffed did this in 2021 with his family and said we need to find a way to facilitate this for Chuffed customers. So we started working with Takaro Trails and they have been outstanding to our customers. So we are very pleased indeed with how this option is working out for Chuffed Gift recipients.

Sailing away in the Abel Tasman

Sailing away in the Abel Tasman

Exploring the Abel Tasman should be on everybody’s ‘must do’ list sometime in their lifetime, and we can’t think of a most relaxing and effortless way than on a large sailing Catamaran.

This package includes a water taxi from Kaiteriteri Beach to Anchorage Beach in the National Park. Depending on how long you want to spend on the beach at Anchorage, you can choose your time for the water taxi to suit you – 9.00am, 10.30am, 12.00pm, or 12.40pm.

At Anchorage Beach you will meet your catamaran at 1.30pm for a 3 hour sail back to Kaiteriteri. Along the way you’ll learn about the Abel Tasman National Park, see secluded coves, golden sand beaches and visit a fur seal colony. A stop at the Split Apple Rock is also included.

You’ll arrive back at Kaiteriteri at approximately 4.30pm.

Why is this Chuffed Worthy:

When we were researching partners to become part of the Chuffed offering we very quickly decided we needed an effortless option for people to explore the Abel Tasman National Park. Often we associate kayaks and walkers with the Abel Tasman but that isn’t for everybody. So a water taxi and sailing experience to enjoy this ultimate summer beauty spot we thought ticked those boxes. Jane-Maree & Martin Holmes have been operating sailing adventures in the region for 23 years so we thought they were the perfect match for Chuffed.
