Things to Do on South Island

New Zealand's South Island has long been revered for its beautiful mountains, glaciers, lakes, and skiing and hiking trails. A holiday trip to South Island would not be complete without seeing a few of the great sights that it has to offer. The twin Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers are a popular attraction since they are easily accessible. Fiordland National Park is the largest of New Zealand's 14 national parks and offers some breathtaking scenery. The Southern Alps are one of the country's most impressive natural features and Aoraki, also known as Mount Cook, is the tallest. These are just some of what South Island has to offer, but no holiday is complete without a trip on the Otago Rail Trail.

The trail follows the old Central Otago Railway route that winds from Middlemarch to Clyde. The 150-kilometre trail is a hotspot for tourists who enjoy walking, riding horses, and cycling the trail. Cycle Surgery has been offering Otago rail trail bike hire for over a decade. With our passion for cycling and knowledge of the trail, we can provide our clients with an experience that will provide a lifetime of memories.
