Multi day treks with
Mackenzie Alpine Horse Trekking
Sorry, we will not be running any 'multi-day' treks for the 2015/16 season
Roam the upper reaches of the Mackenzie Basin with its towering ranges and glacial headwaters on a multi-day trek tailored to individual groups. Trek over privately-owned country nestled beneath the Southern Alps and experience a night or two in high country mustering huts, or camp out next to a braided river that feeds Lake Tekapo. Enjoy first-hand the country and scenery of historic working high country sheep stations that many admire but few ever actually experience.
An example of a six-day trek:
Day 1: Ride out across the tussock plains of Balmoral Station and over the Old Man Range, where you will experience views of Aoraki Mt Cook and Lake Pukaki. Camp is spent at Irishman Creek on western side of the range.
Day 2: Spend the day riding across Braemar Station up to Maryburn Hut where you can look across Lake Pukaki to the mighty Ben Omar Range and at the head of the valley New Zealand’s highest peaks.
Day 3: From Maryburn hut we drop into the Forks River Valley on Glenmore Station, for a night spent in The Forks hut.
Day 4: Head down The Forks River and cross through Mt Joseph onto the edge of the Cass River, a tributary of Lake Tekapo, where camp is set up for the night.
Day 5: A short day riding, it is a wander from the Cass River down through Godley Peaks Country to the edge of Lake Tekapo where there will be a free afternoon, maybe spent fishing, claybird shooting or just relaxing in the surrounding scenery.
Day 6: The final day sees us cross the Cass River and follow the shores of Lake Tekapo, homeward bound.
