Tasman's Great Taste Trail

 This easy cycling trail takes a leisurely tour of Tasman's most beautiful coastal and inland areas. Riders will pass vineyards, breweries, orchards and no end of places to stop and enjoy some quality cuisine. As a loop the trail is 174km long, but it can easily be broken down into bite sized portions just right for short morning rides and gentle afternoon cruises.

Tasman's Great Taste Trail is one of New Zealand's Great Rides.

A user survey has been carried out on the trail over one weekend in January for the past three years.  Download a report.
