Our One Day Taste the Trail Package will take you cycling through one of the most spectacular gorges on the famous Otago Central Rail Trail from Auripo through to Clyde.
Cycling on a vehicle free trail with an easy gradient you will cycle through amazing scenery whilst riding over viaducts, bridges and through tunnels. Central Otago's landscape is so unique and beautiful that you will find yourself stopping constantly to take in the stunning surrounds.
