The Wairarapa is one of New Zealands most long-established areas, with the southern coastline boasting many remnants of early Maori and Pakeha habitation. The first New Zealand sheep stations were established on the plains south of Martinborough by European settlers, and the townships of Greytown and Masterton were the first planned inland settlements in the country.
This historic region can be explored through our four-day guided trail adventure ride, covering huge coastal farm stations along the rugged east coast and bush clad mountains that fringe the valley to the west. The terrain for this ride includes rocky coastlines, sandy beaches, forest trails, farm tracks, open grass paddocks, the odd slippery clay track, and backcountry gravel roads.
