About High Country Horse Adventures

Chose from a part day or one day trail ride out of Lake Coleridge Village or a classic 3 or 4 day trek through some of New Zealand's most spectacular remote high country, camping overnight in authentic musterer's huts.

Enjoy the spectacular Canterbury High Country - only 75 minutes drive from Christchurch - yet a world away !

We offer very comfortable accommodation at our Lodge at Lake Coleridge Village, including private double ensuite rooms, spa pool and a picturesque, quiet setting.

We provide quality meals and cater for special dietary requirements, please advise us of your requirements when booking. 

​Lake Coleridge is Canterbury's hidden gem !
