We were a group of 6 women with very limited horse riding experience. The two girls guiding us made us feel at ease and we were made to feel very comfortable on the horses they chose for each of us. The horses were just beautiful with great temperaments. We rode up to the hilltop with an awesome view where the... More

A thoroughly entertaining ride! Myself and my 5 year old were booked on this tour as part of a combo (with Mitai Maori Village), so was not quite sure what to expect...though it became one of the highlights of our North Island adventure. We had an awesome guide, James. He gave us plenty of thrills with his 4WD buggy driving,... More

The 1-hour horse trek was absolutely superb. It's easy enough even if you've never rode on horseback before. This was my first time and the guides were really helpful, and gave the training necessary for the trek. The trek takes you up into the mountains, with a stunning view of Rotorua and the lake from the summit. Definitely worth it!!

Went on a whim with my GF in a middle of a cyclone to see if this activity was still running! Finding out that the Quad bikes were still on the cards we suited up and did some safety briefing in paddock then off up the mountain and native forest. It was challenging but a fantastic rush!
