Experience the thrill of a four wheel drive expedition into the mountains; be awed by the viaducts as you cycle the Otago Central Rail Trail; enjoy the solitude of an alpine trek; imagine the back-breaking toil of early gold miners at a heritage site; try your hand at curling, an ancient ice sport; take a lake cruise; and evoke your sensibilities in the art galleries and museums. Whatever you choose to do when you travel to Central Otago - you'll have an unforgettable experience.
Cycle Central Otago
Central Otago has impressive mountain ranges, valleys, plains and seasonal weather, which provide opportunities for a wide range of land activities. Cycling the Central Otago Rail Trail is achievable for most people with a reasonable level of fitness, but for those who want a more exhilarating experience, off-track mountain biking is a must.
