Cycle past vineyards on the Otago Central Rail Trail |  <i>Lachlan Gardiner</i>

Whether you’re short on time, interested in food or wine, looking for something for the family or just need a little boost from an electric bike, we can offer a cycling experience as individual as you.

The flexibility to tailor itineraries to the needs of our travellers has been a hallmark of Trail Journeys since we were the first on the Otago Central Rail Trail in 2000. Today, we continue to take the hassle out of planning a ride along the Otago Central Rail Trail as well as nearby Roxburgh Gorge and Clutha Cycle Trails. 

Choose from a pre-planned cycling itinerary featured on this site or by talking to our team to create a memorable cycling trip in New Zealand to suit you.

Our experience, local knowledge and friendly team make us the perfect partner in creating an unforgettable Otago cycling holiday.
