Looking for a gentle introduction to bike touring? Then check out our newest tour offering: the 5 Day Otago and Clutha Cycle Trails.
This easy cruise through stunning Central Otago combines two popular trails: the Otago Rail Trail and the Clutha Gold Trail. Both provide a fascinating insight into the history of this region, from early Maori moa hunters to the thrill of the gold rush, and European farming, railway and mining endeavours.
Scenic highlights along the way include mountain backdrops, cascading river gorges, and golden high-country. You’ll also have the option to experience viaducts, tunnels, abandoned gold diggings, and art deco buildings in pretty country towns.
In addition, this tour includes a trip on the Taieri Gorge Railway from Middlemarch to Dunedin, a scenic jet boat transfer down the Roxburgh Gorge, and wine tasting at a Central Otago Winery.
Both trails are classed grade 1, meaning the route is mainly flat, with occasional small climbs. Much of the riding is off-road, making it a safe option for families. And the tour is fully-guided, so you won’t have to worry about accommodation, getting lost, or riding with heavy loads – luggage transfer is included!
With just one departure this summer – leaving 8 April 2018 – get in touch today to book.
Have a great week,
