Otago Rail Trail Independent Cycle Tours

Self Guided Bike Holidays on the Otago Rail Trail, New Zealand

Self Guided Bike Tours or Independent Cycling Tours on the "Otago Central Rail Trail" are available either from Queenstown as a 1 to 5 Day short holiday; and is part of Nga Haerenga, the New Zealand Cycle Trail. Once on the Otago Central Rail Trail, you follow part of the route of the old railway line from Clyde to Middlemarch, which originally linked Dunedin with Cromwell. The link from Middlemarch to Clyde took 16 years to complete this 150 km section, crossing numerous bridges, viaducts and culverts through some most spectacular scenery, including the Maniototo Plain, farmland, hills and gorges.
