NZ Adventures High Country Heritage Tours in 2025

Lees Valley.

Whether you picnic amongst scenery off the beaten track or enjoy lunches on stations with the runholders – the views will be the same.

“Unrivalled,” say owner-operators of NZ Adventures 4x4 Tours, Robbie and Connie Crickett, who operate back country tours throughout the South Island.

The only mandatory stipulation is vehicles on an NZ Adventures 4X4 Tour have all terrain-type tyres in good condition and a ‘low range’ transmission fitted.

“Every vehicle is supplied with a radio so a commentary is available and two-way communication is enabled.”

All accommodation is in motels and meals are in restaurants.

The High Country Heritage Tour is run as either a six or seven day tour. Starting in Blenheim and traveling through iconic Molesworth Station.

“Highlights are travelling over the hills from Wairau Valley into Awatere Valley, Orari Gorge and the huge stations of the Mackenzie Basin and Lake Benmore.”

Further south travelers enjoy the Oteake Conservation Park, quaint St. Bathans “and the Dunstan and Pisa Ranges will not disappoint”.

The High Country Heritage six-day tour is run three times in a season – November, February and April. In 2025 the April High Country Heritage Tour dated 11th – 16th will finish  in Cardrona, after breakfast  on the morning of the 17th in time for Easter and Wheels over Wanaka, this will be the final time the Wheels over Wanaka will be held. The High Country Heritage seven day tour will be run in March.
