Description
For generations, people have been drawn to the Victorian High Country at Easter, and for good reason. April is a beautiful time of year in the North East of Victoria, and the experience of escaping into the mountains on horseback takes it to a whole new level. The expedition offers a mountain of experiences, with spectacular mountain tops, wild rivers, historic huts and secluded camps to explore. Ride across Pretty Valley and the sweet pastures of the Bogong brumbies, canter to the top of Mount Fainter with spectacular views of Mount Feathertop across the deep cut of the West Kiewa river, and camp at Bogong Jack’s hideout. The journey descends back into the Kiewa Valley via Big Hill Cattle Track, and ends with a luxurious bed and delicious home cooked dinner at Spring Spur. Bogong Horseback Adventures’ pack horse expedition program commences annually in the late spring when the peaks of the Victorian High Country shake off their winter snows and alpine life starts to stir. This is a traditional and practical way of exploring the vast landscape, with each horse expertly matched to the rider. The rides are between 15 to 25km per day, with opportunities for loping canters across open plains. Camps are selected for their beautiful settings, some in traditional stock camps featuring huts, but often secluded bush camps maintained by Bogong Horseback Adventures. The expedition includes a night before and a night after at Spring Spur, where you can join the family for a meal and enjoy your comfortable en-suite room. All meals are prepared from local fresh produce, with beer and table wine with the evening meal. Helmets and oilskin coats, first aid and emergency communications are also provided. Transfers to and from Albury NSW are available as an optional extra. So, if you’re looking for an adventure that will inspire and refresh, then join Bogong Horseback Adventures for a unique experience of the Victorian High Country.
