What to Expect
Travel reference:

Enjoy a gentle horse ride through breathtaking scenery in the spectacular Dart Valley.

At the head of Lake Whakatipu lies Glenorchy, the gateway to Mount Aspiring National Park and Te Wahipounamu, one of New Zealand's three World Heritage areas. Internationally recognised for its exceptional beauty and untouched qualities, the area has been showcased in the Oscar-winning Lord of the Rings trilogy as well as other big screen films.

With more than 60 horses of various breeds and a team of guides with a wealth of experience and knowledge, these amazing horse treks are suitable for riders of all levels. You can choose either one hour Hobbits' Hack experience, a gentle, walking paced hack across a 100-acre property in the Dart Valley, or upgrade to a two hour River Wild experience to ride along beautiful braided rivers and stunning scenery in the Dart Valley.
