Explore the stunning Queenstown & Arrow River cycle trails - Cycle all 150km of the iconic Otago Central Rail Trail - Admire the craftsmanship of hand-built viaducts and tunnels - Take a breathtaking journey on the famous Taieri Gorge Railway - Enjoy a delicious wine tasting at a Central Otago vineyard - Cycle along the Pacific coast on quiet backroads


Combine two of the South Island's most popular cycling experiences, the adventure capital of Queenstown and the famous Otago Rail Trail. The cycling begins with a beautiful ride from Arrowtown to the Kawarau 'Bungy' Bridge on the newly established Queenstown Trails before pedalling the country's most famous cycle path, the 150km vehicle free Otago Rail Trail, a specially converted trail along the old Central Otago branch railway line from Clyde to Middlemarch.

You'll discover the many small towns and abandoned gold diggings scattered along the trail as well as meeting some intriguing locals before hopping off the bikes to board the spectacular Taieri Gorge Railway into Dunedin, one of the world's great train trips. For those that thrive on adventure and activity during their holidays Queenstown will be a highlight in itself and we encourage you to talk to us about extending your stay here to make the most of the many activities on offer.
