Farm Trekking and Weekend Retreats
We have fabulous trekking in this area of the Bay of Islands suitable for novices to the more experienced rider. We can offer you stunning farm rides on a picturesque farm with beautiful views of the Kerikeri Inlet. Enjoy a relaxing ride, or something more challenging depending on your ability. We have our own cross country course available for use as well.
Trekking time is approximately 1 hour.
Cost is $80 per adult and $70 per child. We can cater for small and large groups.
For young children we recommend a trek of 1 hour. We can lead very young children on one of our small ponies.
We can arrange treks for most days at a time suitable for you.
We will take you on a full beach trekking experience for approximately 3 hours. Take in stunning farm and ocean views as you make your way around the local Purerua Peninsula.
Costs vary according to numbers so please call to enquire. It does involve transporting horses to beach location so is a greater cost.
Rain in the Bay of Islands is very localised and even if it's pouring where you are we might have blue skies at the farm! Give us a call on 09 407 5026 to check the weather for your ride. It has a habit of clearing up just in time for treks!

I had a great ride with a really good guide. I have struggled to find horse trekking for more experienced riders whilst travelling around New Zealand, but there was so much beautiful farmland to ride through we got to give the horses a good blast. Loved it!
