What you need to know

Be exhilarated and enjoy some of Queenstown’s stunning scenery on horseback on the Moke Lake horse trek! Spend 1.5 hours taking in spectacular views of the panoramic lake and mountain vistas; crossing rivers and, for the experienced, cutting loose on the large areas of flat terrain!

Follow a friendly and informative guide, who will share interesting facts about the area’s history, such as knowledge of the 1860s gold mining. The guide leads you up the river braid, over to flatter ground and up and around the hill; after taking advantage of an amazing photo opportunity here, the group rides back down, returning to the base of Moke Lake. As this is not an overly lengthy ride and as the terrain is suitable for all levels of riders, the Moke Lake trek is ideal for families! *SEASONAL TOUR : Oct - May only.
