The Great Taste Trail is a trail built for cyclists, providing an off-road route through some of the most delicious and scenic landscapes of NZ. Much of the trail is easy, flat riding in a heritage landscape of rolling hills and plains, lush valleys and beautiful golden beaches. For foodies, and lovers of wine, craft beer, or art, this trail has it all.
The Great Taste Trail consists of two main sections. The inland section of trail, locally known as the Rail Route, passes through the densest area of wineries accessible from the trail. The coastal trail travels through stunning rural and coastal landscapes.
Tasman’s Great Taste Trail is part of a network of Great Rides being developed throughout the country under the NZ Cycle Trails Project. The first section of Tasman’s Great Taste Trail opened in 2012.
