About Trail Adventures

About us …and our business

This life is no practice run, so make the most of every opportunity, but most of all……enjoy the journey!! This is one of our philosophy’s which in 2012 encouraged us to leave the comfort zone of a weekly salary and follow our passion for adventure!

With a young family of three girls, we certainly threw everything “but the kitchen sink” into creating Trail Adventures……it’s fair to say it wasn’t easy during those first few years, but our love of meeting awesome new people and showcasing our stunning region has been so rewarding.


Shortly after establishing Trail Adventures and given that the trail was still very young, we embarked on setting up two new businesses to help provide income and keep our heads above the water. Oamaru Harbour Tourist Park and The Penguins Nest Café were ventures that certainly added pressure to our lives but we learnt a lot and it allowed us to continue momentum with the bike trekking business from a financial perspective. In early 2017 we sold the Tourist Park and Café to focus on Trail Adventures.


A passion for cycling, the outdoors and our excellent knowledge of the region are attributes that we use to provide you with a fun filled quality experience on the A2O – no matter how long you choose to spend on the trail.

We hope to hear from you soon!

Based in Oamaru

From our location in Oamaru we have excellent access to a wide range of recreational pusuits. From a transport perspective Oamaru is located right on SH1 therefore allowing an easy connection to public transport making it easy to plan your arrival and departure.

Locally we are blessed with amazing landscapes and options for outdoor activities including, the A2O, single track mountain bike trails,  walking trails, Lakes, rivers and the ocean offering fantastic fishing and boating, beautiful public gardens and amazing playground facilities for children.
The region is also blessed with having some of the best cafes and restaurants in the country on it’s doorstep including (but not limited to!) Fleurs in Moeraki and Riverstone  Kitchen (site of the famous castle) and many more within central Oamaru itself………it’s a foodies paradise!
