High Country Ride & Dine

CANTERBURY, SOUTH ISLAND

A stunning horseback adventure with private dining and sumptuous accommodation.

You’ve probably never ridden a horse to lunch. But there’s no better way to explore the stunning Ahuriri Valley on your way to the most unforgettable meal of your life.

You’ll depart from the stable on a track suited to your experience. You might choose a relaxing trot by the riverbed, or a more hair-raising gallop through beautiful alpine fields.

But if it’s the food you crave, we’ve got al fresco dining on a whole new level. You’ll arrive at the world’s most incredible dining room, served by a private chef, ready to delight your hungry bellies.

And if the ride back on a full stomach feels a bit much, you can get whisked back to the Lindis, your oasis for 2 nights, for a couple’s massage. Or private outdoor bath. Or both.

Your Stay

Chic, luxurious privacy in the Ahuriri Valley

The pods at The Lindis are the kind of accommodation that’s not only breathtaking, but just makes sense. 

Cloaked in mirrored-glass, they effortlessly blend into the natural landscape, offering architect-level privacy.

What’s inside? 18m2 of heart-melting luxury. You’ll enjoy a king-sized bed, ensuite, outdoor sitting area and the finest linen for ultimate comfort.

Your 2-night stay comes topped up with everything that matters. Dive into complimentary breakfast, lunch, and dinner, including pre-dinner drinks and canapés. Make the most of a wine pairing experience, a couple’s massage, and e-bikes to explore this gorgeous slice of Aotearoa.

You’ll even get a bottle of champagne on arrival. How’s that for service?

Work of Art

"Everything about The Lindis is exquisite. One of the most amazing luxury experiences in New Zealand and it is like being part of a work of art, inside and outside, man-made and natural, but in complete harmony. The never ending changes we witnessed in the mountains and river of the Ahuriri Valley takes your breath away."

Staggering

"We stayed in one of the three "pods" which are self contained and entirely private units finished impeccably throughout with warm and natural woody hues and peppered with well implemented details, each pod sits proud on a deck with the most staggering views across the Ahuriri valley and an enormous outdoor tub."
