New Zealand is home to some the most spectacular wilderness walks and tracks as well as an amazing network of both private and public huts. The New Zealand Adventure Company has a vast understanding and knowledge of these walks and can offer you safe well planned itineraries and options suited to your experience and expectations. The New Zealand alpine back country boasts some of the most untouched and picturesque wilderness you will find anywhere around the world. Glacier and snow capped mountains feed the clearest of streams and enrich the native forest with minerals. Forests that are now protected under National Park and World Heritage status cover the mountains and valleys along the mighty Southern Alps. These forest are home to hundreds of incredible native bird and insect species as well as a few introduced mammal species that now call New Zealand home.
Explore the Central Otago wilderness area and its rich farming heritage with a unique experience into the high country of the Lindis Pass. Departing from Wanaka you will travel back in time, deep into the historic landscapes of one of New Zealand’s strongest and harshest farming regions. You will 4WD through mountain streams, huge tussock covered basins whilst observing a working high country station which is home to Merino Sheep (the wool of which is used in the worlds finest woollen garments) and Angus Hereford Cattle. Lace up your boots and start your 2 hour hike to your overnight alpine hut retreat where refreshments, appetisers and a full wild New Zealand meal awaits. Soak in the stunning vista of Mt Cook, Mt Aspiring and the Otago high country whilst enjoying your freshly prepared gourmet meal sourced from local New Zealand game and produce. Follow it up with a glass of local Pinot, Scotch or night cap of your choice by the camp fire. Awaken the following morning to a spectacular New Zealand sunrise breakfast, take a short walk from the hut or just relax in the comfort of the warm hut. To return home you will have the option to trek off the mountain, down hill mountain bike or take a breathtaking 40 minute scenic helicopter flight over the Wanaka lakes and Southern Alps to conclude your adventure.
