    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    Get beyond the farm gate of a real working high country farm. Unlike any farm tour anywhere in NZ because we have exclusive access, we travel private backroads high into the mountains (1000m) for jaw-dropping views of Lake Wanaka. Enjoy easy alpine nature walks, see herds of Red Deer grazing freely in the mountains. Hear fascinating stories told by your real kiwi guide. Relax with freshly brewed coffee and tasty treats at our very own alpine cafe. This will be one of the most authentic experiences you'll take in NZ

This was a brilliant trip, loved feeding the sheep and really enjoyed the historical site visit too. The views were spectacular and our guide, Neil, was knowledgeable and a capable driver. The vehicle was comfortable and spacious. This is a wonderful way to see Wanaka from a

I took the Wild Hill 4WD Scenic Farm Safari during a visit to Wanaka towards the end of February 2020. It was a fantastic experience and the most memorable trip of my 5 weeks in NZ. The scenery and the views were breathtaking by any standards and there were was plenty

Thanks so much for taking the time to write this fantastic review. To be your most memorable trip of your 5 weeks in NZ is amazing!! Can't wait to see you back here, but I'm guessing it will be some time given current circumstances. Stay safe.

Thanks to our guide, George Scott, a retired farmer and nature activist, we learned and experienced a super introduction to farming in New Zealand. His research of West Wanaka Station was exhaustive and combined with his actual experience, no questions went unanswered. The

Tour guide George Scott prepared us for and took us on an exciting visit to West Wanaka Station. Learning about the sheep/cattle/deer farm was interesting and educational. We watched sheep shearing and fed a few sheep. Geological info added by another tour guide added to our

Finished my uphill MTBing early & wanted an activity to fill the afternoon. VERY helpful & knowledgeable ladies at iSite Wanaka recommended this tour. Despite being a little sceptical (am a NZer so am a bit blase about farm animals) whether or not I'd enjoy this, I had a

We get this reaction from all NZ'ers who come out with us. It is SO much more than a farm tour, infact I'm inclined to leave the words "farm tour" out of our marketing material as it may put people off. Yes it is a farm tour but it is unlike any farm tour you can think of. Fun alpine backroads leading to jaw-dropping scenery and best of all you are the only ones there. I could go on ......but I will refrain. Thank you so much for your support and I have the $10 here for you!!
