Ridge Top Farm Walk is a unique opportunity to combine a true North Island 'Kiwi farm' walk for 4 or more people with the tranquillity of glamping.

We offer a fully catered New Zealand private walking adventure over farmland with the options of one day or two nights/two days walking package or just simply nights Glamping. The 1500 acre sheep and beef farm offers you stunning panoramic views encompassing Kapiti Island, Mt Egmont and Mt Ruapehu - the perfect place to soak up the central North Island scenery.

Escape the rat race and relish the beauty of nature - the birds singing, streams trickling and breathe in the fresh rural air. Ridge Top Farm Walk is an experience that everyone will love. From families and groups of friends holidaying together, through to groups of couples seeking a peaceful retreat and international tourists looking for adventure - this quintessential Kiwi farm offers an entertaining taste of true rural New Zealand.

Get a group of up to 10 together (minimum 4) and enjoy wonderful farmland, panoramic views, glamping accommodation and delicious meals. Contact us today to book your farm walking experience.


A country-themed Glamping site nestled into a sheltered spot with a luxury tent and hut, a camp kitchen and bathroom, and a dedicated campfire area, create a social and relaxed space from 2 to 10 people.

Wake up between cotton sheets and under a cosy duvet, to the sound of magpies warbling in the early morning light. Start your day off on the right foot with a piping hot shower in the camp bathroom. Cook a meal on the campfire with the kids, or just lie back in the outdoor bath with a cold drink and a good book.

Ridge Top Farm is completely off-the-grid, so has no electric power source. Energy for hot water and cooking is supplied via LPG gas bottles. Solar power provides the lighting along with battery powered torches. A metro Fireplace keeps the covered kitchen area warm and cooking is done on BBQ and gas rings.

  • Comfortable queen and single beds, each with pillows, wool duvets and all linen & towels
  • Full Bathroom facilities (including 1 shower, 1 flushing toilet and outdoor baths)
