Bike around Wellington’s blissful bays
Embark on an unforgettable e-bike tour of the bays around New Zealand's capital city, Wellington. The rolling hills and serene harbor provide a picturesque backdrop for this family friendly city tour, with e-bike rental included. You'll start at Queens Wharf in the center of the city before cycling along the Wellington Waterfront. From here you'll take in the lively harbor and extraordinary beaches of Oriental Bay before completing your ride along the Miramar Peninsula.
Your bicycle tour begins at Queens Wharf, a hub for ferry boat services to the idyllic islands that surround the city and home to New Zealand's national museum, Te Papa Tongarewa. It's here that you'll saddle up and get acquainted with your e-bike before pedaling off towards the Wellington Waterfront. Watch the sailing boats glide along the glassy harbor as you cycle along and ask your guide for a local's recommendations of the best waterfront cafes and restaurants to soak up the view of the bay once your sightseeing day tour is done.
Continuing along the Miramar Peninsula, leave the urban bustle behind and cycle along the scenic coast. Along the way, you'll stop at a local cafe to refuel and soak up the scenic vistas. The Miramar Peninsula is first and foremost a beguiling stretch of rugged coastline with sandy beaches and undulating hills, but it is also home to some great activities. Here, you’ll find Weta Workshop, the world-famous special effects and prop company responsible for the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings movies, and Roxy Cinema, a decadent Art Deco cinema, that makes this peninsula the perfect spot to return to and continue exploring when your guided tour is over.
From there, it's time to climb to the lookout point, a ride that’s made easy by the helpful boost of your e-bike. As you reach the summit, you’ll be rewarded with an awe-inspiring panoramic view over Wellington, the Miramar Peninsula, and the ocean harbor entrance. From here, you’ll loop back towards the city accompanied by ocean views and sublime scenery all the way.
