Tour description provided by Viator

Enjoy beautiful scenery, great bike trails and Niagara-on-the-Lake's finest wines on this biking and wine-tasting tour. Niagara-on-the-Lake is an incredibly scenic town, located on the shores of Lake Ontario, and is ideal for exploring and wine tasting by bicycle! With relatively flat, easy biking routes connecting the wineries, this tour is suitable for all fitness levels, and any wine you purchase will be delivered to your hotel. Choose either the 6.5-hour tour that includes a delicious picnic lunch or the 4.5-hour tour that includes a specialty cheese pairing.

Driving from winery to winery is nice, but cycling between wineries is better! On this Niagara-on-the-Lake cycle and wine-tasting tour, bike along peaceful country roads and trails, stopping at the area's best wineries. The Niagara-on-the-Lake wine region is part of the greater Wine Country Ontario and is famous for a variety of delicious wines. This tour allows you to sample many, including Ontario's famous ice wine. The relaxing pace and relatively flat bike paths offer easy riding (even after a couple glasses of wine).

After being picked up at your hotel or meeting downtown, your guide will lead you through the historic Niagara-on-the-Lake area and on to four or five wineries (depending on option selected) ranging from large-scale operations to boutique, family-owned vineyards. If you decide to buy a bottle (or 10!), your guide will return to the wineries after the tour to pick up your wine purchases and deliver them to your hotel.

Half-Day Tour with Cheese Pairing:
Visit four Niagara-on-the-Lake wineries during this 4.5-hour tour, starting with a vineyard-to-tasting-room guided tour at one of the region's largest and most iconic wineries. Continue to three boutique wineries for more wine tasting, including Pondview Estates Winery, one of the newest wineries in the area, where you’ll enjoy a specialty cheese platter for a delicious cheese and wine pairing.

Full-Day Tour with Picnic Lunch: Begin this 6.5-hour tour with a leisurely cycle to one of Niagara-on-the-Lake’s largest wineries, where you’ll have a full vineyard tour and a wine tasting. Next, cycle to the beautiful Kurtz Orchard for a picnic lunch of sandwiches, salads, fruits and sweets. After lunch, continue with more wine tastings at three to four wineries, including boutique, small-production vineyards.
