Adventure South Guided Tours


Adventure South NZ specialise in guided NZ Cycle Trail holidays, and it all began with the Otago Rail Trail back in 1992.

We offer more trail experience, more departure dates, and the friendliest guides to ensure that your cycling experience along the Otago Rail Trail is truly memorable.

We offer two fully guided versions of the trail, one departing from Queenstown and the other from Christchurch. They both offer the complete ride from Clyde to Middlemarch; it is just the start point that is different.

On our Otago Rail Trail trips you can expect:

  • Quality accommodation
  • All breakfasts and dinners, and most lunches
  • All accommodation (twin share basis)
  • A well maintained fleet of bikes for hire
  • Electric bikes for hire, ideal for those a little nervous of their fitness
  • Curling
  • Professional guide and driver
  • Water, and healthy snacks and treats on the trail

While we offer more dates than anyone else, if they don’t suit, or you would like to tailor it to a private group departure, just talk to our team and see how easy it is to make it happen.

Don’t leave your Otago Rail Trail trip to chance – ride it with the experts since 1992.
