Why book your rail trail adventure with us?

The only rail trail company based in the historic village of Naseby (home of curling, also known for New Zealand's tallest Christmas tree, legendary hospitality, breath-taking night skies and spontaneous outbreaks of bagpipe playing), Big Sky Bike Adventures are proudly local.

We’re new operators with a fresh approach to make sure your rail trail experience is perfect from your first contact through to your last dismount.  We'll not only take care of every detail, we'll go the extra mile for you (literally!)   See the difference for yourself.  Simply send us your rail trail wish-list via our contact page, and we'll get back to you with:

  • A COMPLETELY FREE, easy to read itinerary that shows all your costs at a glance

  • A fully itemised per person breakdown with no hidden costs

  • A clear day-by-day guide that shows you how far you'll cycle each day plus all your accommodation, travel and refreshment options 


  • Our Big Sky care package and the promise that if you run out of puff, one of our care crew will come and collect you
  • Comfortable, reliable GIANT bikes
  • Complimentary gel seats
  • Complimentary panniers


We can arrange a variety of free (yes! free!) and commercial off-trail activities including rock-pool swimming; 27 holes of golf at three country courses, forest-bathing (yep. It's a thing), curling, night sky spectaculars with bean-bags, rugs and mulled wine (if you're over 18), ice skating by starlight (that's one for winter),   dog sledding, four-wheel drive tours, retail therapy at Maniototo galleries - or anything else you can think of, we have the contacts and the local knowledge to make it happen for you.


Big Sky Bike Adventures is owned and operated by two generations of the Crawford and Morice families. We look forward to meeting you and your family, and introducing you to our very special part of the world.
