The mighty Matukituki Valley here at @lakewanakanz is a must see especially the #robroyglacier with @ecowanakaadventures. It's the most varied one-day walk in @purenewzealand @nzmustdo @newzealandtravelreview

We never know what we'll see on our safaris so it pays to have your camera close by at all times. Thanks to our guide George Scott for capturing this incredible close encounter his group had with this Red Stag yesterday. Lake Wanaka 100% Pure New Zealand #farmtour AgriTravel

Thank you so much for the absolutely wonderful Wild Hills Safari trip we had today! As a relatively new 'local', with no boat, we have not had the opportunity to see the lake in all her glory - until today! Thanks to West Wanaka Station for enabling Ridgeline to access their farmland for such a wonderful experience - going up the 4WD tracks to breathe in the superb views at the 'Alpine Cafe' was fantastic! And once we were up the top, the scenery was stunning - and so great to experience Lake Wanaka on such a beauty of a day! George, our driver, was wonderful - he gave us lots of information about the area and the farming environment, pointing out deer we wouldn't have spotted. We felt very safe with George in control at the wheel! My parents, who are over from the UK, shared the trip with us, and were equally blown away by the whole experience. I would thoroughly recommend that both visitors and locals go out and do this trip - you will not regret it! Thank you Ridgeline Adventures! :-)

We were so excited to see 2 dead stoats when we checked our trapline high in the mountains overlooking Lake Wanaka this week. That's two fewer predators in the Matukituki Valley. To find out more about the fight to help bring back the native birds to this incredible valley read on......

It is times like these that getting away from it all is everything...We can certainly get you away from prying eyes. Infact where we take you most locals have never been. Not a hockey puck, rugby ball, or another human for that matter, within a country mile! We celebrate the complimentary alpine massage we offer to every guest as we negotiate wild alpine backroads by 4WD. We also boast a window seat for everyone at our exclusive "Alpine Cafe", a jaw-dropping viewpoint high above Lake Wanaka. No traffic issues either, unless you have a problem with a roaming Red Deer with bambi at foot effortlessly gliding by in front of you at any moment.
"Listen the the crowd, the crowd will tell you" ... yes check us out on Trip Advisor.
It's certainly a "game of two halves" with our local expert farming guides and faming life perfectly matched with incredible alpine vistas, nature walks and historical sites.
All in all Wanaka will be the winner on the day.....

There is something about flying that is simply breathtaking. We learnt to fly this year. Here is a few of our favourite flights. Buckle up and stow your tray table for a quick journey through 2016 Lake Wanaka

We took a day off today to join Rotary Club of Cromwell and their incredible annual fundraising 4WD safari across the Piza Range. Jaw-dropping, seldom seen landscapes on our backdoor! Big thanks to the private landowners for letting us pass through your farms and onto DOC estate. Thanks also to Webbs Fruit for the tasty box of peaches you gave to every truck - there were 40! Most of all thanks to the Cromwell Rotary for a wonderful day.
