As most of the trail accommodation providers only cater for small numbers, it is recommended that you pre-book or use our free itinerary planning and accommodation booking service. We can also arrange bike hire, transport, off-trail activities and luggage transfers.

Camping is possible at various locations along the trails however, staying in accommodation means you don't need to carry sleeping bags and tents!  There are very few freedom camping locations on the Otago Rail Trail however there are camping facilities in Omakau, Wedderburn, Ranfurly and Naseby; the latter is 15km away from the trail and external transport is required at your cost.
