This cycling journey combines one of the South Island's most popular cycling experiences, the Otago Central Rail Trail, with a stunning ride along the Clutha Gold Cycle Trail as well as time on the Roxburgh Gorge Trail, for a comprehensive exploration of the beautiful Otago region. Begin pedalling on the 150km vehicle-free Otago Central Rail Trail, a specially converted trail along the old Central Otago branch railway line from Clyde to Middlemarch, to discover the many small towns and abandoned gold diggings scattered along the trail as well as opportunities to meet some intriguing locals.

Take a break from the bikes and board the spectacular Taieri Gorge Railway into Dunedin, one of the world's great train trips before returning to the saddle with rides on the Clutha Gold and Roxburgh Gorge Cycle Trails, starting near Gabriel's Gully, the historic sight of the first gold strike in Central Otago. Enjoy riding the purpose built cycle way, past farmland and fruit orchards, following the beautiful turquoise waters of the mighty Clutha River. Take a scenic jet boat ride on a section of the Roxburgh Gorge, before finishing with a celebratory wine tasting in one of the many award winning vineyards the Central Otago region has to offer.
