River to Sea Trek (Full Day)

This full day horse trek for experienced riders explores some of what makes the West Coast so special, that short distance which takes you from mountain to rainforest to the shores of the Tasman Sea in no time at all.




Your return ride will be approximately 26 km and starts off following a similar path as the Half Day Trek.

Continuing on your ride from Salt Water Flats towards the coastline you will climb a short hill taking time at the top to enjoy the 360 degree superlative views of the Southern Alps, the braided Cook river, farmland and out to the Tasman Sea. Then, descend down to the sea where you will ride along an untamed beach and your guide will find the perfect spot for your idyllic picnic lunch.

Take time to enjoy where you are before you head home, it is a place not easily accessed by other people, a place where you are away from it all.

Enjoy your memories of the untamed, natural wilderness of the Fox Glacier area.
