Trip Info

Cycle the iconic Otago Central Rail Trail. This is usually a 3 day bike tour through vast valleys, circled by spectacular mountains. This is a great group or family activity suitable for most ages and abilities – the trail gradient is never steeper than 1:50 so even those people who haven’t ridden a bicycle since their schooldays will manage it! Stay in historic pubs or guest houses along the way and enjoy great food, wine and companionship on the trail. Cost is for a group of up to 8 people.

Your adventure awaits!
