Day 1: Omarama to Otemetata
You’ll be picked up from your Oamaru accommodation (or elsewhere by prior arrangement) and we’re headed for Omarama. After a break at “The Wrinkly Rams” café it’s on your bikes and headed for the Hydro town of Otemetata.
A beautiful ride alongside Lake Benmore before ascending over the hill to Otemetata. You’ll stay in one of our selection of holiday houses and we’ll advise you of good options for your evening meal.
Day 2: Otemetata to Duntroon
The next morning you’ll head slightly north to go up and over the Benmore Dam – NZ’s second largest hydro station and NZ’s largest earth built dam. It’s then around Lake Aviemore and through to Kurow where you should take time to look through the town’s museum and grab a bite to eat.
You’ll continue from Kurow and have opportunity to do some wine tastings before heading through to Duntroon. We have a selection of very comfortable accommodation in Duntroon – you’ll enjoy the hospitality!
