Wanaka High Country Walk

Wanaka’s most spectacular and private high-country walk.

This is the Wanaka most locals have never seen. We take you well off the beaten track exploring private backroads high into the mountains of West Wanaka Station. The perfect mix of wide open walking trails, alpine meadows, jaw-dropping scenery, and high country farming life. You’ll love helping out and learning about our predator control conservation project along the way too. A relaxed picnic lunch awaits atop Lookout Hill. Don’t feel up to walking all day? No problem, we provide 4WD support so jump in any time and enjoy the view and friendly banter with your guide. A safe, fun and active day of classic kiwi adventure the whole family can enjoy together.
