Following a 10am, 11:30am, 2pm, or 3:30pm pickup at your Rotorua hotel, transfer in comfort to the trekking base to meet your guide and the horses. Pull on your riding helmet and head into the riding arena so your guide can select the horse or pony suited to your riding experience.

Then, swing into the saddle and head onward through the lower part of Mt. Ngongotaha. Explore working farmland on horseback at a slow and steady pace, and enjoy sweeping views over New Zealand’s pretty countryside.

Climb further up the mountain, through beautiful tree-lined native bush, and gaze out over shimmering Lake Rotorua in the distance. Stop along the way for photographs and listen as your guide sheds light on the region’s rich history.

When your trek comes to an end, head down through the paddocks to base at the bottom of the mountain, say goodbye to your horse then return to your departure point in Rotorua to conclude your tour.

Fantastic!!! Joseph looked after me when I got there, and Sean was a great tour guide! They really took the experience to the next level by letting me ride a retired LOTR horse. Grateful I was experiencing a moment to relive my fantasy world.

The view is simply spectacular. I enjoyed the chilly air, riding on my horse with a superb guide to point out all the wonderful surrounding views. Will do again next time i'm there...
