SOUTHERN HIGH COUNTRY STATIONS

7 Day Fully Hosted Small Group Tour.

Spend 7 glorious days exploring the back roads of the Canterbury region, as we visit five historic High Country Stations situated in the heart of the South island. 

This exhilarating and majestic tour gives you a true feel for the high-country lifestyle.  With sweeping tussock lands the High Country is known for, enjoy tales of life on the stations and take a glimpse into a life lived far away from it all. Revel in the wild beauty, while relaxing and soaking up the clean and clear air of these unspoiled pieces of South Island paradise, as you journey across unique and expansive rugged terrain.

Travelling back to Christchurch we experience a leisurely end to the tour as we relax and enjoy Punting on the Avon, a visit to the beautiful Botanic Gardens as well as the Riccarton House Homestead and the not to be missed, historic Giants House in Akaroa. 

This 7-day adventure has the perfect ending, as we relish in our farewell dinner on the Christchurch Tramway Restaurant, before leaving these iconic landscapes behind and head home.
