7 Day Fully Hosted Small Group Tour.
Feilding, in the heartland of the Manawatu, is a 16 times award winner as “New Zealand's Most Beautiful Town” and is a great centrally located base during our rural tour. Our quality accommodation is just a short walk from the town centre, providing an idyllic setting with no packing and unpacking required, during our fun filled days exploring in and around the Manawatu and Rangitikei regions. From farm tours, garden visits, bush walks, cheese tastings and river cruising, no rural tour would be complete without the essential art of shearing, listening to the bang of the hammer during the Saleyards auctions or sampling the delights of a Farmers Market, we experience all of this and more as we journey through the countryside.
With the tour timed to attend the New Zealand Rural Games, this is sure to be a treat. An extravaganza of the kiwi sports that helped to build our nation. Competitors from far and wide take part in challenges striving to win the NZ Rural Sportsman of the Year Award. From wood chopping, shearing through to fencing, tree climbing to highland heavies, the event entertains crowds of tens of thousands and all taking place in our very own heart of the Manawatu. Visitors are always enthralled by this event and there is even the opportunity to ‘have a go’.
We look forward to sharing our passion of these fabulous heartland regions, just waiting to be discovered.
