Tākaro is the Māori word for play..

and that's why Takaro Trails is N.Z.'s # 1 cycle tour company for FUN!

As the regions only QUALMARK endorsed cycle tour operator and a recipient of the Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence in 2014 you can be sure you'll enjoy excellent, personal service and care when you ride with us. 

The 'Hawke's Bay Trails', part of Nga Harenga - the NZ Cycle Trail - are made up of three 'Great Rides'.  These rides, being the Landscapes Ride, Water Ride and Wineries Ride total 200km of stunning off-road trail and form the basis for our unique cycle tour routes through the  Hawke's Bay countryside.

So choose the self-guided cycle tour that suits you best.  With three, five and seven day options we take the 'hassle' out of 'independence' so you can get on with enjoying the glorious countryside.  Not to mention the outstanding cuisine and world acclaimed wines to be sampled along the way, all in the wonderful knowledge that you're enjoying well earned, guilt-free calories!  

Short on time?  Don't worry!  Our range of day trips give you a taster and are certain to see you returning for more.  Why not get together a group of friends and cycle the wineries, a great way to celebrate a special occasion. We'll provide the bikes, the route and the transport so you can enjoy the wine without worry!

But there's more to our cycle trails than just wineries so take a look at all the options on our Takaro Tasters page.  Or if Mountain Biking is more your 'thing' we have packages to the exceptional Pan Pac Eskdale Mountain Bike Park, definitely one of the regions best kept secrets.  We can even arrange a personal guide to suit your biking ability if you wish.  

So come and play with us at Tākaro Trails… just for the fun of it!
