Snowy River Horseback Adventure

From October to May, two- to five-day homestead-based horseback treks combine adventure and comfort. Trails meander along pretty streams and climb to vantage points with splendid views of valleys, mountain ranges and the Snowy River gorge.

Horses are carefully matched to riders and guides are accredited. You’ll enjoy delicious gourmet picnic lunches, carried by a pack horse. Back at the homestead, you’ll savour three-course dinners prepared by a chef using fresh local produce.
