Wanaka 4WD Tours


Wanaka 4×4 Explorer boat and 4WD tour brings you the best of both worlds with views from the lake and land, looking over remote islands and National Parks. From start to finish we are off the beaten path, no people, truly remote, truly stunning.

The ultimate lake and mountain experience

Now also with heli option!



Your trip starts at the marina by boating up Lake Wanaka towards the head of Stevenson’s arm with tremendous views of glacier-carved mountains, a constantly changing vista of steep walls and alpine peaks. We cruise past Stevenson’s Island to our landing point at the foot of Mt Burke.
Boarding our 4×4 Vehicle we climb above the lake, your view expands until all of Lake Wanaka lays before you in a stunning panorama of crystal clear blue water and the alpine peaks of Mount Aspiring National Park.

Take some time to enjoy the solitude and enjoy the best view in Wanaka! Your guide will give you an insight into the history of the farm station and the geology of the alps and some of the stories of the early settlers who sought farmland, gold, and a better life here in the mountains of New Zealand.
