The Otago Central Rail Trail on Horseback

Saddle up and take a ride back to the turn of the 20th century.

Immerse yourself in the stories of the magnificent heritage that shaped the mighty Central Otago region and the historic Otago Central Rail Trail.


Along the way, you’ll experience some of the most remarkable scenery Central Otago has to offer, across the wide open plains to the rugged mountain ranges, then down to cold sparkling rivers.  All laid out under a wide blue sky.  There is no doubt this is big country and, when you horse ride with Trail Treks, you’ll have the time and leisure to see so much more of it than is possible from a bike.


Just imagine! Plenty of time to take photos and no need to keep hopping off your bike. Time too, to simply enjoy the view without the need to watch where you’re cycling.



Together, Trail Treks and Central Otago offer wonderful country hospitality and service coupled with a real rustic splendour that combines to make your Lunch time on the Rail Trailexperience truly unforgettable.



Horse riders of all abilities and ages are all well looked after. We’ll ride to suit your level of experience and for the more adventurous a faster pace can be arranged.


We can overnight/multi-night trips and trips off the rail trail. Talk to us about customising your horseback adventure especially for you.
