Welcome...   to an unforgettable high country experience  on a family owned and managed New Zealand sheep station (aka ranch). 

Operating since 2003, Beaumont High Country Experience has built a reputation for excellence.  Bookings are not combined, hence, visit as a couple, family, or small group to become our exclusive guests for the duration of your visit.  This enables us to personally tailor to the individual needs of our visitors.  Single bookings may choose from a full day horse riding activity to a multi-day option (whereby they will be combined with 1-2 other persons).
