This year I shouted my niece for her 23rd birthday . It had been her dream to horse treck. As a first time rider the guides were awesome. The scenery of the Punakaiki valley is second to none ! This has to be the best operation country wide.

We got to cross rivers, go on the beach and go up and down hills. Amazing!!
Everything was positive in this trek, experienced, knowledgeable staff, lovely yet not boring horses and a ride up a stunningly beautiful valley.

Please everyone go here for the trek of... 更多

Neil led us that day and taught us perfectly and easily.We were very comfortable .The 2+ hours was walking ( not trotting) though a varied terrain or road, fields,... 更多
