Price guide

“How much does it cost” is the second most asked question after “which direction should I cycle in”. We specialize in providing you with a fully customised itinerary to meet your activity and budget requirements, so the price will reflect the standard of accommodation you’ve requested and the other activities that you’d selected to do while you’re in Central Otago.

Something to note, we don’t run fully supported tours so the package that you’ll get from us will be significantly cheaper because there is no guide and vehicle following you along the trail. That said, if you feel like you may need some backup then we can provide you with transport options across the trail thanks to the relationships that we have with some of the other transport providers.

Adult – $40 / day which includes late model bike, helmet, pannier bags, bike light, tool kit with spare tube, pump. Note that these items are provided on every bike.
