Join Fiona on a one to five day horse trek through Nelson's untamed back country, located at the top of New Zealand's South Island 50 minutes from Abel Tasman National Park. Baton Run Adventures offers an experience well off the beaten track and we'd love to share this corner of the world with you.We like to keep trips small (five people or less) and personal, so you will be well looked after while still experiencing a sense of adventure. Come and explore five unique valleys bordering the Kahurangi National Park. Spend a day on a beautiful well trained horse and wrap it up with a stay in our Backcountry or Alpine accommodation.The ultimate adventure with the personal touch!

I've been to Baton Run many times and always have a fabulous, fun, exciting ride through Baton Valley's gorgeous terrain. Fiona cares for her horses and her clients and makes sure everyone has a great time. The horses always seem to be having as much fun as the riders! This riding experience is well worth the trip to this exquisite... More

I went for a horse trek back in December with my cousin and his friend who were visiting. Having been a trekking guide myself in the past (in the States and in NZ) and having gone on horse treks around the world, I was expecting tired horses that would simply follow each other. I couldn't have been more wrong!!! The... More

wonderful place, and if you stay overnight, you get to sleep in a very cozy cottage, to see such an incredible natural on horseback, then that you get to feel like home, many thanks to the wonderful Fiona for an incredible experience!

I have been back for seconds, thirds and fourths and keep bringing new people to experience the wonderful hospitality, tasty home cooked food, gorgeous horses, perfect sky, soft cozy cabin, cool crystal waters, sweet smell of grass, gentle purr of wild life, frolicking lambs, dancing fan tails, deep cry of the lonely stag, rolling hills and snow topped mountains and...

WOW! What a amazing day set in a stunning place with a awesome guide and the most beautiful horses that have their own personality's. I did a half day trek with a friend and was amazed at the idyllic scenery and could have moved in on the spot. I had a very friendly horse who was easy to ride and... More

If you're thinking of visiting the Baton, Fi and her amazing horses, stop thinking and start booking. It's magical. I booked a 5 day trek last year. It is easily the best riding I've ever done. The horses are fantastic, the scenery jaw-dropping, the riding exhilarating. Staying up in the mountain lodge on the first night is particularly special. Swimming... More
