Rail Trail

The Central Otago Rail trail runs through the Ida Valley and we can accommodate guests doing the Omakau to Oturehua leg with Omakau being just over the hill and Oturehua just up the valley (pickup and drop off is complimentary by arrangement).  The Poolburn section has to be one of the most spectacular and interesting sections with the viaduct and tunnels.

If you’re looking to get “off the trail” then the Ida Valley provides plenty of options. These are particularly good if you’re a fit rider who “needs something more” after the gradual grades of the trail.

  • If you’re reasonably fit then you can ride up to the Poolburn Reservoir (18km with a very gradual incline when you start up the hill).
  • A similar ride to the Upper Manorburn Dam, (24 km with some steeper climbs but large plateaus)
  • Ride up on private farm land up towards Rough Ridge (by arrangement).
  • Ride from Alexandra via Galloway, up and over the Crawford hills.

Or, if you’re looking to take a rest day then you can just kick back and relax on some of our outdoor bean bags and soak up the sun.
