We started by being picked up after an exciting jetsprint boat ride and nature walk to a hidden waterfall. We were taken to a farm, within the Wanaka Reserve Station. We toured fields of sheep and cattle, learning about lamb twinning and where the males were hiding. Next was a "petting zoo" visit with orphan sheep, alpacas and a very... More

A very special 4 hour trip into a spectacular part of the world. Your eyes will be overloaded with the spectacular views. We saw plenty of farm animals roaming and even a wild chamois.. A mountain goat. Fantastic commentary, not too much, just enough to get you interested and wanting to find out more. Loved the break at the top... More

Our travel agent booked us on to Ridgeway Adventures and I didn't really know what to expect. George and Mark arrived promptly at our hotel and I liked that they made sure the three little kids were in car seats and safe before setting out in two cars for my party of 10. George was a great guide and told... More

Had a great view of Wanaka and surroundings from the hills. Our guide George is an excellent 4WD driver and knows all the in and outs of sheep farming. Seeing all the lambs in the meadows was so enjoyable. The lake, the green hills with sheep and deer, the mountains topped with snow and the blue sky is New Zealand... More

Our photography tour group went with Ridgeline Adventures for a dawn shoot at the private lands of West Wanaka Station. This necessitated a very early pre-dawn rise, to be met by Ridgeline and driven in their 4x4 vehicles onto the station and up to the top of the hills. It was worth it! Magnificent views, glorious sunrise, and tea/coffee from... More
