What You Can Expect
Your day starts with a drive over the historic Rimutaka Ranges, one of New Zealand's wildest hill roads, and into the Wairarapa countryside. First stop is Patuna Farm Adventures where you choose a morning activity: 2-hour Horse Trekking, High Ropes, or a guided walk through the Patuna Chasm.
The Horse Trekkers explore different areas of this high country farm on horses to suit your skill level. The High Ropes include the big swing, trapeze and the beam and is a real challenge. The Patuna Chasm is a spectacular limestone wonderland. You can experience the wonder of its fossils, ferns, stalactites, waterfalls, eels, wildlife, wild pigeons and native birds. After your morning activity you will return to the family house for a relaxing homestead lunch.
After lunch it's time to relax as you follow one of Wairarapa's most beautiful river valleys to Martinborough, where we visit a local vineyard before stopping in at the Martinborough Wine Centre for a tasting or afternoon tea.
