Indulge your passion for good wine and fine dining and join us for a leisurely wine tour. Soak in the hot outdoor thermal spa at Hanmer Springs. Quiet country roads and our support vehicle to carry your wine purchases make for a great short break. We drive out of the city to commence cycling
There is a short section of unpaved road – a hybrid bike is more suitable than a road bike.
DAY 1 HANMER SPRINGS.
You will be met at your hotel in Christchurch (we will be pleased to arrange accommodation for you) to try out your bikes. We will then take you out of the city to a delightful quiet road where you will cycle to a succession of vineyards on your way to Hanmer Springs, an attractive village set in a natural amphitheatre. There are hot mineral pools near your lodging and the opportunity to try bungy jumping or jet-boating.
DAY 2 CHRISTCHURCH.
A delightful ride along a quiet valley before lunch at a vineyard. We then meander along quiet roads past more vineyards and the historic steam train at Waikari, finishing mid afternoon. It is a short drive back to Christchurch, to your hotel or the airport.
