“Horse Trek”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

This place does not get mentioned enough for how fantastic it is. If you want to explore the area this is a good way to do it without nearly as much effort as is needed for most of the other activities based in Franz Josef.

“A personalised experience.”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Jeremy accompanied our young daughter on a short ride and she loved it. He catered for her thrill seeking requirements and it was a memorable ride. The horse was beautiful and the environment spectacular.

“Amazing”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

What a brilliant experience. Having never been on a horse before I was understandbly nervous, our guide Katie was so patient and confident that I was put at ease. Everything looks different from horseback, the views were amazing and was a great way to really appreciate the beauty of this amazing area. Highly recommend!

“Great horse trek”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

We, a family of four, did a 2 hour horse trek and loved it. We are beginner riders and the horses were well suited to beginners. The trek was lovely through bush and small creeks, we even did some gentle trotting at times. The guide was friendly and gave info about the area and offered to take photo's of us at a few scenic spots. Highly recommend a horse trek in beautiful glacier country!
