This popular cycle journey through beautiful pastoral landscapes offers a taste of the genuine hospitality of the local sheep-farming community. Gold and pastoral farming was the heart of Central Otago's economy and the railway provided the life blood for these isolated communities.
Visitors today can stay with farming families and enjoy country town hospitality.
