About Trail Journeys
Trail Journeys has operated on the popular Otago Central Rail Trail (New Zealand's Original Great Ride) since the rail trail began in 2000. We’ve helped thousands of independent travellers put together great tour itineraries tailored to their special interests, budgets and time constraints. We are Qualmark certified meaning you can be assured of a quality experience in all aspects of your tour. With depots at both ends of the trail, a large fleet of specifically developed bikes, vans and buses and experienced drivers and guides, we make your journey on our Rail Trail comprehensive and effortless. While cycling might form the core activity on your tour, we can incorporate other activities such as Motorsport, 4WD adventures, Curling, Farm visits and many more. As well as operating on the famous Otago Central Rail Trail we also operate on the Roxburgh Gorge, Clutha Gold, and Tasman Great Taste Trails all with their own unique beauty and history.
