9 DAY CENTRAL OTAGO BIKE TOUR from only $1,799

Your Overall Experience

Central Otago’s rolling hills turn from green to gold in the glistening sunlight providing a backdrop to a succession of tiny, charming gold-rush towns where farmers mingle with cyclists at quaint historic townships. As well as being one of the country’s top wine regions, the area provides fantastic opportunities for those on two wheels to explore a part of the world that has been lost in time; from the prehistoric mountain ranges in the distance, to the remnants of prospectors past and the industrial infrastructures dotted throughout.

This easy paced terrain bike tour follows the path of the former railway line that traverses the Central Otago region between the towns of Clyde and Middlemarch, with free time at leisure either side in Queenstown and Dunedin.. With vehicle assistance throughout, a luggage service, all the essential equipment provided and energetic local guides you are all set for a memorable adventure. Each stop along the way has a story to tell, a wine to try and even a go at the quirky Scottish sport of curling. A truly unique experience, this 9 day tour includes 8 nights accommodation, a 5 day semi-guided bike tour with concierge vehicle assistance, bike hire with essential equipment and more
