This tour takes you deeper into all that is Criffel, view the awe-inspiring beauty of Lake Wanaka, Lake Hawea, the Wanaka basin and the Southern Alps, from the very peak of the Criffel Range – a staggering 1300 metres above sea level.
Discover an often-forgotten chapter in Otago gold mining history hidden on top of the Criffel range. Find out what life was like for Otago’s early gold miners and see equipment and village remains untouched since the gold petered out and the miners moved on.
Experience life on a high country station and modern deer farm. Hand feed alpaca, deer and sheep and learn about our farming operation. And finish with a gourmet morning or afternoon tea at one of Wanaka’s most impressive picnic spots.
