Why book your Otago Central rail trail adventure with us?

The only rail trail company based half-way along the rail trail in the historic village of Naseby (home of curling, also known for legendary hospitality, breathtaking night skies and spontaneous outbreaks of bagpipe playing), Big Sky Bike Adventures are a proudly local Central Otago company. From our base in the middle of the trail we’ll meet you at either end of the rail trail - whichever end you want to start from.

We’re committed to ensuring your Otago Central Rail Trail adventure 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 kilometre for you (literally!)  See the difference for yourself.  Send us your 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

We can arrange a variety of free (yes free!) and commercial off-trail activities including rock-pool swimming; a visit to a unique whisky distillery, 27 holes of golf at three country courses, forest-bathing (yep. It's a thing), curling, night sky stargazing with an expert sky guide, ice skating by starlight (that's one for winter), four-wheel drive tours, bespoke tours to an historic haunted hotel, retail therapy or anything else you can think of, we have the contacts and the local knowledge to make it happen for you.
