We like to keep trips small (no more than five people) and personal, so you will be well looked after while still experiencing a true horse trek adventure.

You have the option of exploring five valleys bordering the Kahurangi National Park and will have over 2023 hectares of land to ride on. Landscapes vary and you will wind through native bush, listening to the native song of the Tui and Bell Bird, and canter across green fields surrounded by majestic mountains, including Mount Arthur.

You will enjoy mountain vistas on a quality horse that is willing and well schooled. Trek up high on winding tracks through the native bush and down steep tracks crossing gushing rivers.

Includes all food
