Take to Central Otago's bike trails instead of the ski slopes for a winter getaway with a difference.
Riding these trails in winter is worth the extra effort as you're rewarded with one-of-a-kind views out to the snow-capped mountains surrounding the area.
Winters in Central Otago bring out the best in the region's landscapes as you're transported to a true Winter Wonderland. Frosty mornings make for great photo opportunities.
You’ll also enjoy much more of the trails to yourself with fewer riders taking on the ride in the colder months.
Don’t be fooled by sunny, clear days though as temperatures can still be just above freezing. We recommend packing plenty of warm and waterproof layers.
The perfect end to your day out in the elements will be pulling into your warm and cosy accommodation to put your feet up and relax.
