Want an exciting way to explore the Mackenzie High Country? Look no further than our tour of Mount Hay Station, our working Merino sheep farm just 5km outside of Lake Tekapo. Our four wheel drive farm vehicles are made for the terrain, and our local guides are psyched to take you on some of the thrilling adventures.

Jump in and listen to your guide give background on our 25,000 acre farm which has been in the family for nearly 100 years. Spot some of the farm residents along the way, consisting of 12,000 Merino sheep, 700 Angus cows, 30 alpacas, 25 horses and 15 working dogs! You can also spot many wild animals around the farm too.

Discover some of the bird life on the farm at one of the tarns you will pass, whilst passing through the scenery all around Mount Edward and the Tekapo saddle. Hold on to your seats as we then climb Mount Hay where you have fantastic views back to the Lake Tekapo Township, Mount John, along the lake and into the Aoraki Mount Cook national park!

Explore Phantom Lagoon next, with its beautiful waters in a scenic location and enjoy small refreshments. After this, you will hear the stories of Boundary Creek Hut and finish the tour with stunning views down Lake Tekapo as you make the steep descent back to town.

Certainly the more exciting way to see the High Country - join us!
