Central Otago is home to three of New Zealand's Great Rides; the Otago Central Rail Trail is the Original Great Ride and is on many peoples 'must-do' lists.

The Roxburgh Gorge Trail is known as the grand canyon of New Zealand, and the Clutha Gold Trail follows the powerful Clutha Mata-au River and showcases the regions farming, fruitgrowing and goldmining history. 

It's also possible to join these three trails together for over 250km of spectacular off-road riding through incredible scenery.

Cycling and scenery. One way or another, we’ll take your breath away.
