Then, at your final destination, and after an exquisitely scrumptious lunch (included), share the passion of the amazing people at Erewhon Station - and experience a wagon ride like no other.

The track is full of variety as you are taken on a farm tour enjoying breath taking scenery encompassing rivers, tussocks, mountains & glaciers. The ride goes off the beaten track into a magical landscape that can’t be experienced from the road. 

Experience a nostalgic time long past - but not forgotten!

With loads of great photo opportunities and the chance to experience the high country at the horses’ pace. Your wagon ride will definitely be a memorable trip. Comfortable off-road wagons seat 14 people - but larger groups can also be accommodated. Erewhon generally hitch up a 6 Clydesdale horse team in 2 rows of 3.
