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!

We all have 24 hours in a day. That is the only thing in life that is equal. What we choose to do with those 24 hours is up to us. The idea behind this quote encouraged us to leave the big city of Auckland and our jobs to follow our dreams. We have always enjoyed experiencing New Zealand via cycle trails, Great Walks or car and wanted to share this passion with other like minded individuals.

We made the decision to leave Auckland and begin a new life in the South Island. Vaughan has previously been a property manager and service manager while Aimee’s career has been spent as a high school Health and Physical Education teacher.

We look forward to doing everything we can to ensure others have a memorable experience on the Alps 2 Ocean trail.

We hope to hear from you soon!

Based at the central point of Omarama

Our Omarama depot serves as a great location from which to service the entire trail from, being at the halfway point of the cycle trail. With easy access through to Queenstown we are the closest depot on the A2O trail to an international airport, and can provide transport to and from to make your travel logistics much easier and the trip much more enjoyable. Omarama is also the location to start from if you are looking at cycling just half of the A2O trail. From here we can transport you to the start point of the trail at either Aoraki/Mount Cook Village or Lake Tekapo, or you can embark on the eastern section of the trail through to Oamaru with transport back to Omarama when you finish. You are welcome to leave your vehicle at our cycle depot. Linking through Queenstown we can have you on the trail via our Omarama depot easily and the drive is stunning too.
