Baton Run Horse Treks. Horse Treks, Trekking and Back Country Accommodation, Nelson, Tasman, New Zealand (NZ)

Book with Baton Run Horse Treks, Nelson Now
We are now specialising for experienced equestrians only (riders that can mount with out aid and can trot and canter with confidence). Riders age limit 12 to 65 years.


The horse trekking season runs during the summer months (November to April) but outside of this the Honeywell and Alpine Huts can be booked for people who want accommodation for tramping, fishing or just relaxation. We sometimes have availability during summer, so please inquire as we may be able to accommodate you.

When treks are booked please expect to share the cabin accommodation with fellow trekkers; if you want to book the cabin for your exclusive use only please make the request to us (minimum 3 people).

Honeywell Hut Accommodation  Sleeps 5 people

You are based here for all treks up to three days and will explore a different location each day. Accommodation has bunk style beds with a small kitchen and open-to-the-stars hot showers and an outside hot tub.

This hut has all the style of a back country musterers hut and has been lovingly restored with creative interiors and rustic charm. Where possible, recycled timber from the farm has been used, including bridge timbers and old cattle yards. The hut is lined with locally milled macrocarpa timber, infusing it with a cosy atmosphere. 

A pot belly stove keeps you warm and an outdoor wood stove heats all your water for showers and baths. Soak your tired body in the outdoor bath after a day’s horse riding and gaze at the beautiful night sky of the Southern Hemisphere. Gather in the outdoor kitchen area for evening get-togethers.

All bedding is provided.
