A great horse riding holiday to fit in to an extended tour of New Zealand, this trail ride takes you in to the stunning and exclusive landscape around Lake Hawea and the Hunter Valley. Riding at all paces, discover the unspoilt wilderness of South Island on horseback. Accommodation is in remote shearer's quarters given just enough modernisation to be comfortable without spoiling the traditional feeling.
Pack trip on sure-footed horses between high stations in the Hunter Valley with breath-taking views of Lake Hawea, Mount Aspiring, and Lake Wanaka. Dramatic scenery, fresh air and simple shearer's quarters in high country stations provides the antidote to modern life. Warm hospitality on private stations makes for a true New Zealand country experience.
This is a great compilation of adventurous riding on forward-going horses for competent riders and cultural exploration of Oman. Ride forward going Arabian horses along the beach and through desert dunes, visit historically and culturally significant sites and have a taste of the Bedouin life camping in the desert. Some nights are also spent in comfortable guesthouse accommodation and the mountain-top resort of Jebel Shams. Traditional Omani fare is served throughout the tour.
