OTago Rail Trail and Lake Dunstan

The new Lake Dunstan trail - Cromwell to Clyde

We can cater for up to 20 people to ride these trails. It requires a bit more planning than the usual Queenstown trips so please get in touch if you're interested in exploring these new and exciting trails. 42 Km of trails passing through Bannockburn wineries, a floating coffee boat and wooden bridges attached to rock faces. 

"This took us 2.5hours riding at a moderate pace [on e-bikes] with 1 20min lunch break and a 10 min break. The service was specialised for just our group and the bikes were fantastic. We would of loved to have 1-2 glasses of wine at Bannockburn but it was closed for renovations. The views were still spectacular and the floating bridges were awesome. This will be a massive hit with cyclists".

Tips

It's worth knowing how to change a tyre and use a quick link before you go. We will give you the equipment to do this quick fix and we will give you a quick guide before you embark on your trip. This is not a fully-supported ride as some parts are remote. We will be on hand to answer calls and help your day be as easy as possible. 

Tag-alongs and trailers are not recommended as the trails are too narrow.

Baby seats only fit on the regular MTB bikes and not the Ebikes. 

We dedicate a driver out for you all day so keep in touch with a few pictures to let them know you're alright.

Although this has a grade of 1-2 it has some slightly tricky bits. If you've not ridden a bike in a long time this is not the trail for you. The bridges become narrow and you need to be ready to put in some effort for the hills. 

We have comfy seats as standard in less you want a hard seat?

Please don't cancel on the morning of the trip. We require 48 hours notice as we dedicate a driver for the day to you. If the weather is unappealing get in touch as soon as possible and we will do our best to reschedule. 

Open all year around - The most popular times are Spring, Summer and Autumn.

Ebikes average time - 3 hours

MTB average time 4 hours, possibly up to 5 hours depending on ability.
