Adventure Horse Trekking NZ Limited is committed to preserving and enhancing the environment. Our aim is to make a small environmental footprint and this is why we utilised horses to ride into the NZ Wilderness, source our foods locally or grow them organically in our garden, carry our food and gear on pack horses with minimal use of a vehicle. We aim to recycle our waste utilising our hens & pig for food scraps the compost heap & vegi patch for paper and horse phoos etc. In addition we seek to utilise tree trimmings as fencing in our yard and driveway. Our house is heated utilising renewable timber stocks. We are working on a number of other ideas and are always open to new ideas from clients.

About us

Adventure Horse Trekking

High Country – New Zealand

Trail riding rejuvenates our links to Mother Nature, bringing perspective on our purpose in life and affords us a break from the stressful pace on our modern existence. With Adventure Horse Trekking NZ you will ride quiet surefooted horses, over the breathtaking snow capped mountains and isolated high country stations, through snow fed, stony rivers and alpine lakes. Our safaris lead you along time-worn trails that Maori hunting parties, pioneers and gold miners’ used when Aotearoa was first settled. You could be forgiven for thinking you were an actor in "the Lord of the Rings!"

Accommodation is in 100 year old musters huts, shearers’ quarters, historic cottages or the oldest and most haunted NZ pub. We have worked hard to source lodgings that reflect the history of the Central Otago to ensure you visit is filled with adventure. Keen eyes may spot wild deer, trout filled ponds and rare NZ falcons overhead, on a horse you are at one with the environment. Enjoy farm fresh Angus beef, merino, free range eggs, Mount Harris venison, High Country salmon, traditional preserves, relishes and good home baking. We can source award winning Central Otago wines of your choice.

We have 1/2 day to 8 day pack trails available, along with personally tailored packages for birthdays or Christmas functions. We also implement team building and pack horse/ mule & wilderness training
Excite your senses, step back in time and allow the stress of modern life to blow away in the fresh mountain.
