Ride a bike over one of the most scenic of New Zealand's rail trails: the Otago Central Rail Trail. After hotel pickup in Queenstown or Wanaka, you’ll travel by minivan to the heart of Central Otago where you’re fitted with a comfortable bike and helmet.  

Start your self-guided bicycle ride with a gentle downhill stretch, cycling at your own pace for approximately two hours. A support vehicle offers assistance at many points along the trail. You’ll learn about the region and its historic towns from the driver along the way.

Take in the stunning scenery along the former railway line, built in the early 1900s to link Dunedin to Central Otago during New Zealand's Gold Rush. Pedal through tunnels and over wooden bridges amid rugged terrain, and search the skies for a glimpse of the rare karearea, New Zealand’s native falcon.

Stop for an included gourmet lunch at a local hotel in Omakau, one of the towns established when the railway opened. Admire stone stables that stand alongside the former farmhouse, originally built in 1898.
