Franz Josef - 1 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!.

Our one hour trek is perfect for those who are pressed for time but still wish to enjoy our world renowned glacier country on horseback, and get those epic Wild West Coast photos on horse back.

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 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.

Price: $90 Per Person (minimum 5 years of age)

Fantastic experience!

Absolutely loved our trail ride. The track they take you on has beautiful views of the mountains and the local landscape. The horses were very friendly and well trained which made the experience perfect for first time riders. Highly recommend this trek as a great fun way to see the sights. Would 100% do again.

Temperamental horse

But I loved the ride. My horse was named Bandit. I suppose it still is. He was a bit stubborn at times, but not impossibly so. He seemed like a gentle soul who sometimes just liked his way. He would turn left when the other horses went right. I suppose I may have been a bit timid with the reins, but I do think he just liked his way. I would definitely recommend the ride to anyone. The guides seem to genuinely love their work. It is beautiful country with the glaciers in the background. I would do it again.
