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.

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.

Fantastic

Excellent way to see Franz Josef. Really relaxing and the girls who guided us were so lovely. 💯 recommend. Zeus and Ned 🐎🐎, our horses, were patient and really gentle.

Absolutely amazing!

Absolutely fantastic, both the views and the guides were amazing. I loved how I was able to go and canter away from the group in a controlled manner, the freedom was great.

Just a walk

Quite disapointed. We just ride, and the guide did not speak at all about the horses.

Awesome experience

What a great way to see the coast. The horses are great, the guides friendly and relaxed. If you're looking for a different way to view the glacier or scenery then book this.
