Non-riders are accepted but it is recommended that they have a rental car to explore the area. The non-riders can sometimes travel with the support vehicle to the lunch spot and can also be transported to the other accommodations if required (during trek).

Weather Conditions
On the hottest summer days we start the rides very early in the morning and return early afternoon to spend the afternoons relaxing near the swimming pool. Ride pace is adjusted to weather and terrain conditions (slower pace in hot, humid and / or wet weather, slippery trails). In case of severe weather warnings (severe rain or storms) and local bush fire danger we may be unable to go out riding due to safety concerns. We will try to arrange an alternative program for you whenever possible.
