Travel in comfortable off-road vehicles

Sit back and relax in the comfort and warmth of our luxury off-road vehicle. Our late model Land Rover Discovery seats up to 6 passengers comfortably and is built to handle the 4WD terrain with ease.

Witness high country station life

Experience life on a high country station and modern deer farm. Hand feed alpaca, deer and sheep and learn about our farming operation and the 6000 animals that live on Criffel.

Visit historic gold mining sites

Discover an often-forgotten chapter in Otago gold mining history hidden on top of the Criffel range. Find out what life was like for Otago’s early gold miners and see equipment and village remains untouched since the gold petered out and the miners moved on.

Take in the view from 1300m

As you climb up to the top of the stations’ namesake the Criffel Range the view just gets better and better! Take in spectacular views of Lake Wanaka, lake Hawea, the Wanaka basin and the Southern Alps from 1300m above sea level.

A little refreshment before the return journey
