Experience the best of the Hunter Valley on a 3 day cycling adventure.
Renowned for its magnificent vineyards framed by the Brokenback Ranges, the Hunter Valley is Australia’s oldest wine region and well known for its natural beauty, welcoming people and delicious wine. This cycling trip takes in the best of it at a pace set to enjoy the experience rather than get your heart racing.

This trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations and working with new partners can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
There is no support vehicle on this trip however distances are short and, as a centre-based trip, your luggage will remain in the hotel rather than need to be carried with you.
Due to the relatively small distances cycled on this trip, we have a single leader that rides with the group. There may be times when the leader asks one of the group to act as a backmarker.
