Welcome to Rail Trail Active

Otago Central Rail Trail Cycle Tours

A tour through the heart of Otago Central

Rail Trail Active is a locally based team of Adventure Mountain Biking guides. We are focused on creating a back country cycle experience on a previously inaccessible trail capable of enthralling both young and old (and everyone in between!).

Matt and Kate invite you to step away from the normal tourist route and lose yourself in the unspoiled beauty of the Otago Central back country. We will provide all the necessities for an awesome experience; all you need to bring is suitable clothing and a sense of adventure!

The trail itself follows New Zealand's first rail line so it is suitable for all ages and fitness levels. It is one of New Zealand's safest, and most scenic mountain bike rides. Come and join us for a great ride to suit your itinerary and ability and let the R.T.A team fill you in on Otago Central's history.

Rail Trail Active has all Department of Conservation (DOC) concessions and consent to operate guided tours on the Otago Central Rail Trail.
