Connect with nature on horseback and explore Middle-earth or go deep into Queenstown's high country.

With a backdrop of dramatic, jagged mountains and pristine rivers and lakes, the countryside, farms and stations in the region provide the perfect setting for a journey of exploration. Horse riding is the ideal way to venture into rural Queenstown and experience the heartland and people of our special place.

Horse trekking options in Queenstown are many and varied, and start with options only 20 minutes from downtown Queenstown, to full day and multi-day rides that stretch into the high country and through stunning scenic locations.
