Off The Rails
The Otago Central Rail Trail - offers visitors a rare opportunity to explore some of the country’s most impressive landscapes at the leisurely pace of a bicycle, on a route not open to motor vehicles.

YOUR PACE, OUR PLACE

This 150 km adventure offers something for everyone as the gently undulating Rail Trail takes the visitor through this iconic area of gold mining history, farming and dramatic scenery.

OFF THE RAILS - is a well established company with a history of the finest customer service. Our package tours on the Rail Trail are tailored specifically for those adventurers who like their creature comforts to be well catered for. OTR is a Qualmark accredited business.

TOUR OPTIONS - Our cycle tour packages allow guests to bike the Rail Trail at a reasonably leisurely pace and to immerse themselves in the Central Otago region with dedicated hosts who will help them explore, among other things, a turn of the century engineering plant, schist tunnels, historic gold diggings and villages little touched by today’s hustle and bustle. Our team can discuss which tour option best suits clients’ requirements.

OFF THE RAILS’ supported tours include front suspension mountain bikes and exclusive use of comfortable air-conditioned transport . Staying each night at our superior heritage accommodation in the Art Deco town of Ranfurly means you only unpack your bags once, giving you more time to relax and unwind at the end of each day. Experienced local hosts complete the picture, providing local knowledge and a warm welcome, both at OFF THE RAILS’ own lodgings and in transit.
