Enjoy a fantastic days Cycling experience on Central Otago's Lake Dunstan Trail and our premium e-bike hire.

The Lake Dunstan Trail flaunts the best of Central Otago's natural beauty and begins from the quaint Heritage township of Cromwell.

The trail seeps with history from the bygone gold rush days, and as you cycle the 42km ride (Grade 1-3) alongside the beautiful teal waters of Lake Dunstan, the Kawarau River and the Clutha River it will become clear to see why many early settlers chose to reside in this region.

What should I expect from this experience:

  • The Lake Dunstan Trail is one of the most beautiful rides in the Country with absolutely stunning scenery. It is a 'Must Do' activity in the Otago Region.
  • All riders should be physically fit, competent and confident riders. This is a self-guided trip so you can progress along the trail at your own speed, taking frequent stops to enjoy the fantastic views and overall experience. The trail is grade 1-3 with a mixture of gravel trails, boardwalks and dirt tracks. 
  • There is no road access to the trail for the last 25km so you will need to be properly prepared for this ride. 
  • We do not recommend bringing riders under 15 years old on this experience. At times there are narrow trails with steep drops alongside.  All riders should be competent, confident and safe riders.
  • There are 4 potential stops on this ride. These are 1) the Cromwell Heritage precinct where you will start very close to so we don't recommend stopping this early, 2) the Carrick Winery (carrick.co.nz), Coffee Afloat (coffeeafloat.co.nz for menu and opening times, 21km into the ride just before the 2 big hills that your e-bike will nicely push you up!) and 4) the Historic town of Clyde with lots of Heritage Cafe's. Our recommendation is a very short 10 minute stop at the Carrick Winery for drinks and snacks, followed by a 30 minute stop at @coffeeafloatnz/@burgerafloat and then hopefully you will still have time to enjoy Clyde dependent on your progress prior to your pickup at Clyde to return.
  • We only hire new well maintained premium e-bikes from New Zealand's Sinch brand. This experience is about enjoyment. It's not a race! These bikes will 'support' your riding style up to 32km/h and have a range designed to easily complete this ride. You can ride the e-bikes in 4 different settings with the motor either being in the Eco, Trail or Turbo mode dependent on the level of support that you want.  For those riders that are frequent riders at home and don't want an e-bike(!) you can also ride the e-bike in the 'Off' mode - as passionate cyclists ourselves we love our e-bikes and even our most competent riders just love flicking Turbo on up the 2 hills with their family and friends. This experience is about Safety, Fun and Smiles with your party. It is not a race.

What should I bring:

  • Bottled water in a bottle that will fit into a normal bike bottle holder
  • Sunscreen
  • Clothing appropriate for the weather conditions - you will have a holder on the back of your bike for anything that you do not need whilst riding ie jackets etc.
What will we provide:
  • A team member who will set up your bikes for you, provide a safety briefing and then meet you at Clyde to return you to Wanaka
  • A new well maintained e-bike that you should love like a family member, care for on the ride and constantly talk to on your experience. Each of our bikes are individually named and cared for by an x-World Tour mechanic.
