Franz Josef - 2 Hour Horse Trek

Add to List

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.

Price: $170 Per Person (minimum 5 years of age)

Awesome

I had a great time exploring 2 hours the Franz Josef bush. It's perfect for none experience riders since the horses are well trained but if you want to go faster just ask the friendly guides who are doing a great job.

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!!

Top Experience!

My new husband and I went on the horse trek as part of our honeymoon adventure. We were taken out by Angela and I rode 90 and my partner rode Willie. Neither of us are experienced riders, but felt very safe and comfortable on the ride. Angela was great and let us take the ride at our own pace. The horses have lots of energy and are clearly well loved and cared for. I would highly recommend this experience!!
