The Big Sky Safari adventure tour package is a rare opportunity to experience the stunningly beautiful natural landscapes in and around Wanaka and the Mount Aspiring National Park immortalized on screen by the fantastical Lord of the Rings and Hobbit Trilogies.
This unforgettable tour is a 2.5 hour trip that will begin at 8.30am or 1.30pm depending upon your choice and we are very happy to pick you up and drop you off at your accommodation.
We will begin the excursion by taking a guided 4 wheel drive tour over the rugged terrain of an authentic New Zealand high country station cattle farm. We will travel through towering mountains and beautiful valleys, past places of significant interest from some of the first European settlers’ heritage sites with the chance to witness red deer, cattle and sheep in their natural environments. There’s also the option to take a short stroll through ancient beechwood forests to an idyllic waterfall for a quiet rest and refreshments.
For the second leg of our adventure tour we will be taken high into the skies for a once in a lifetime chance to cruise over the soaring peaks of the untouched Southern Alps, one of the world’s last great wildernesses. During the flight over snow-capped mountains and shimmering blue glaciers we will bear witness to the strength of nature, truly seeing how this stunning landscape is carved continuously by the forces at work all around us. We will be some of the lucky few who have the chance to land high up on these astounding mountains and actually walk on the glaciers themselves. Experience these true wonders of nature first hand, walk on the snow, taste the air, enjoy the Big Sky Safari.
