Franz Josef - 2 Hour Horse Trek

Experience Horse riding in the stunning Wild West Coast.

Franz Josef Glacier country is a stand out area in New Zealand, and provides a world class back drop to your riding adventure.

If you have ever dreamed of riding in paradise - well saddle up, as this is it!.

Experience the beauty of New Zealand's Franz Josef Glacier country on horseback. This is horse riding in paradise with a stunning backdrop of mountain ranges and rain-forest. Soak up the magnificent views of the Southern Alps and our highest peaks, and the spectacular glacier, as you trek over lush farmland, glacial moraine and the riverbeds.

Our two hour trek enables riders to canter through the fields if they wish, but at the same time provides a safe trek environment for beginners who can ride at a more leisurely pace. Ride through private farmland down to the clearest of streams.

Take time for a photo whilst on your horse in the incredible river water, with the backdrop of the snowy peaks or New Zealand's West Coast and rain forest framing you.

Our treks provide the personal touch and allow riders to get to know each other and this gives the guides an opportunity to offer riding tips along the way.

Great activity with stunning views

Great activity for both beginners and experienced riders. If you know what to do you can canter while beginners are safe behind with an instructor. Amazing feeling to be back at the saddle. Stunning views and opportunity for perfect photos with a glacier at the background. Can highly recommend it ;)

Amazing experience!

We had an amazing trip, our guide was so friendly and the horses were brilliant! We got to go at our own pace depending on our ability and confidence and the views were spectacular!!

Great Horse trek!

Despite the bad weather, we had a good time wondering in the field and the little rain forest. Beautiful horses , well trained and nice crew. If you have a few hours and dont know what to do... That's a perfect activity.

Wonderful and safe

The guide and the horses were very nice. I was second in line, because I hadn't got any riding experience, so I could always signal well if something wasn't alright like when the gallop or trott where too fast for me. The guide always reacted immediately and made me feel safe on the horse. We also got the opportunity to get some pictures taken of us on a horse.
