Join Fiona on a one to five day horse trek through Nelson's untamed back country, located at the top of New Zealand's South Island 50 minutes from Abel Tasman National Park. Baton Run Adventures offers an experience well off the beaten track and we'd love to share this corner of the world with you.We like to keep trips small (five people or less) and personal, so you will be well looked after while still experiencing a sense of adventure. Come and explore five unique valleys bordering the Kahurangi National Park. Spend a day on a beautiful well trained horse and wrap it up with a stay in our Backcountry or Alpine accommodation.The ultimate adventure with the personal touch!

I had a great 3 day ride with Fiona at Baton Run. Great horses, stunning countryside, lovely food. The cabin was simply lovely. Baton Run was the best part of my trip to New Zealand! Thanks very much!
