    What to Expect
    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.

    Thank you for a great time horse treking on Zeus an Bishop, with my 8yr old. We came last year and my son loves it. Thanks to Nat and Sharon for taking us up and taking care of us all.

    I enjoyed the horse trekking. Our guide Sharina, very experienced and watchful. Made sure we were safe but still made it challenging and fun for us. I enjoyed the view as we rode up to hill. Horses were very professional 😉. They know what to do, so just relax and enjoy ride.

    I'm a semi experienced rider and really enjoyed this ride with my 14 year old son. I would've loved a bit of a trot or canter but understood it probably wasn't possible as the other riders were beginners. Our guide was a lovely young lady. The views on this ride were amazing!
