ACTIVITIES

Skies, vines, and authentic experiences...

Cromwell is a special place that quietly invites visitors to linger, discover, and explore. Without bright lights and fanfare, it gently reveals itself as a town and community full of treasures and colourful characters. We have abundant open space and striking landscapes, world class vineyards and horticulture, lively arts, outdoor sports and motorsport scenes, and fascinating histories of gold mining and the transformation of the town through creation of the Clyde Dam and Lake Dunstan.

We hope you take time to chat to the locals, explore, taste and experience what we have to offer.

It was opened on 8th May 2021 and receives accolades from all who ride it. The trail offers cyclists and walkers an easy 55km ride (Grade 1-2) through unique and fascinating landscapes so characteristic of Central Otago as it journeys along Lake Dunstan, the Kawarau River and the mighty Clutha River Mata-au.
