For the truly romantic at heart. We start off with some basic training and gliding around on the grass at Matiatia Bay to get to grips with the Segways. We can stay here for a while riding around the dips and paths on the large grassy space and along the beach taking in the magnificent views of the surrounding headlands and Matiatia Bay itself dotted with a myriad of white sails further out to sea. Once you are feeling confident with your new skills we head into the bush to wind our way through native Knoffler flowers, Flax plants and shaded areas covered with ferns. Working our way up the hill we pass Olive Trees and Pinot Gris Vines and arrive at the summit of Atawai Whenua Reserve, which opens out opposite the magnificent Cable Bay Vineyard. We can spend some time whizzing through the olive trees and vines to see how one of the best wine producers in the world bring to life the fruit vital to their hand-crafted wines. After the ride through the Vineyard it’s time for me to leave you guys alone for a little ride of your own.
You can ride around the grass area at Cable Bay and work your way down to the ‘secret spot’ set aside for your special moment. A prearranged setup is waiting: a lovely big blanket full of goodies lies waiting amongst the grass set up to take in the amazing, romantic views through the flax plants and vines, past the lush green slopes out to the sparkling ever changing sea and Auckland way off in the distance. Awaiting your arrival on the rug will be 2 champagne glasses, a bottle of Champagne (your choice), food accompaniment (eg strawberries, chocolates, cheese/meat/seafood platter; your choice) and music (your choice). However this is by no means carved in stone and SegWai and Cable Bay would be absolutely delighted to help tailor this special occasion to suit your every whim.
After the magic proposal, and here’s hoping the reply was “Yes”, you can venture up to Cable Bay Vineyard for a more intimate tour of the winery sampling some of their amazing food and wine; elegant dining at their a la carte restaurant or a more relaxed feeling at The Verandah. When you have your fill and are ready to leave transport can be arranged to take you wherever you would like to go next.
