Dunedin Guided Cycling Tour | Guided Taste The Trail ex Dunedin

Dunedin Guided Cycling Tour | Guided Taste The Trail ex Dunedin

This independent tour takes you to the spectacular Otago Central Rail Trail, through some of New Zealand’s most memorable scenery and awe-inspiring gold mining history.

After leaving Dunedin, travel by shuttle to Middlemarch where you will be fitted with your bikes before continuing on by shuttle to Ranfurly in the unique Maniototo District. This is where you will stop at the Ewes & Moo’s Café for lunch before settting off from here to experience 30km of cycling with an easy downhill gradient.

The line from this point gently climbs to Hyde with the Taieri River close by, the Capburn and Prices Creek bridges, followed by the last tunnel that certainly make this a very special part of the trail.

Finish the cycling leg of your day at the Historic Hyde Hotel, where there is a superb character café and bar available for you to sit and reflect on your journey. You are then collected by bus and transferred to Pukerangi to join the Taieri Gorge Railway journey through the rugged Taieri River Gorge. Travel across wrought iron viaducts and through tunnels carved by hand more than 100 years ago on the 2 hour journey back to Dunedin.

On your arrival in Dunedin you will be returned to your accommodation by shuttle.
