New Zealand
South Island 4X4 Trek

Accommodated, Fully Catered High Country Adventure. 11 Nights.

Embark on the premier High Country Tag Along Tour in New Zealand with our unparalleled offering. No other operator offers such excellent accommodation, meals and experiences, making this the tour for adventurers wanting to "rough it in style".

Our tour includes spectacular off-road driving during the day, picnic lunches "on the hill", and very comfortable farm stay lodge, chalet and hotel accommodation at night, along with delicious meals.

You will be accompanied at all times by your qualified guide, Tony. He's a Kiwi with an intimate knowledge of the South Island High Country's geography, geology, flora and fauna, so there's plenty to learn, and you get to experience the countryside through the eyes of a Kiwi.

It's not all about four wheel driving though, with the itinerary including an informative tram tour of Christchurch City, a 50 min scenic flight over and around the highest mountains in NZ, a 2 hour jetboat tour up an incredible glacial river valley, and our final dinner overlooking Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu at the Stratosfare Restaurant up the gondola!

You will pick up your fully equipped rental 4WD vehicle (Hilux or similar ute with a lockable canopy) in Christchurch and return it to either Christchurch or Queenstown (QTN incurs an additional $880 fee). Hire vehicles are backed by the assurance of a reputable New Zealand owned hire company.

The tour includes vehicle hire for 12 days, but you can extend your rental if you want to do some extra exploring while you're there. 

LIVE IN NEW ZEALAND AND/OR HAVE YOUR OWN VEHICLE? If you have your own vehicle in NZ, you are welcome to come along. We will amend the tour price accordingly.

HOW ABOUT A PRIVATE TOUR OPTION? If you get a group of 10 - 12 people together, we can arrange a tour with all manner of optional extras and varied itineraries depending on what you would like to do (prices vary).

5 Star Google Reviews of our 2024 NZ Tour

"Just returned from the first New Zealand tour with Aus 4x4 Treks and all I can say is Wow! This was a fantastic experience through some of the most amazing country I have ever seen, made all the better with Tony’s enthusiasm, organisational skills and 4wd knowledge. I must admit I was a bit nervous about taking a hire car into the bush but every track each day was researched, planned and executed with minimal fuss and no damage to any of the vehicles! The trip was made even better when you consider this is the backyard Tony grew up in so there was no question he couldn’t answer and his anecdotes & stories were genuine and well received by all. I can thoroughly recommend this trip and look forward to travelling with Tony again one day soon" - Steve Close, Australia

"Tony ran a really good trip. Very organised, great accommodation, excellent meals and a heap of 4 wheel driving in some pretty remote areas. My wife and I and the rest of the group had the best time. Thanks Tony. - Allan Waldon, Australia

"Cliff & I thoroughly enjoyed our first group trek. It was exciting to discover the 'outback' of NZ's South Island. Tony was passionate, knowledgable and excellent in showing us areas we would never discover on our own. Narrow tracks around escarpments, a few water crossings, amazing views, an insight to the life on sheep & cattle stations with very comfortable accommodation ,very good meals, an amzing flight over Mt Cook and glaciers plus a Dart River Jet Boat. Highly recommend this as a comfortable, adventurous and superb way to enjoy NZ's South Island off the beaten tourist track." - Gina Raccanello, Australia
