Fit for nature lovers and cycling buffs, pedal through the heart of rustic Otago Central on this full-day cycling tour. Breathe in the fresh air as you pass bucolic farms and sprawling countryside vistas before stopping for a local gourmet lunch featuring the best of New Zealand produce.
After being picked at your hotel, you're taken to the starting point of the Otago Central Rail Trail where you begin your bike tour.
For next 2 hours, enjoy your morning ride as you gently cruise downhill; the rugged pastoral landscape surrounds you. Then arrive at the Omakau Hotel in time for a tasty lunch of fresh New Zealand cuisine and produce, much of it locally grown. Built in 1898, the hotel is well-known for its excellent food.
After lunch, hop back on your bike for another hour of riding. Make stops along the way to snap pictures of this gold rush region of the 1880's.
Your bike tour is completed once you reach the Chatto Creek Tavern; take a break for refreshments and a chance to swap stories with your fellow riders before being driven back to your hotel.
