Enjoy an unforgettable half-day high country NZ 4wd adventure tour as part of your Criffel Experience. Let the Criffel Station team show you amazing views and historic gold mining sites. Join us for a 4wd adventure to the heights of the Criffel Range overlooking Wanaka.
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. Experience life on a high country station and modern deer farm. Hand-feed alpacas, deer and sheep and learn about our farming operation and the 6000 animals that live on Criffel. 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.
There’s plenty of time to enjoy the view. Enjoy a tasty morning or afternoon tea, showcasing local produce, at Wanaka’s most impressive picnic spot before we head back.
