Our most popular tour is our legendary ‘Heart of the High Country’ self-drive and partial self-guided tour, where you’re provided with a ‘Journey Manual’ at the start, which you use to guide yourself in your own (or hired) 4WD vehicle. You can choose your own start dates and travel at your own pace. You’ll be part of a small group of vehicles that has access to remote tracks – some only available to High Country Journeys – traveling from station to station. Some days during the tour you’ll be accompanied by a guide who’ll provide you with local history of the area you’ll be traveling through.

New for the 2017 season, High Country Journeys will also be offering some fully guided self-drive options (or tag-a-long tours) on selected dates. Contact us to discuss our new “Great Mackenzie Country Explorer” and our “South Island High Country Grand Slam” which includes Molesworth Station.

With High Country Journeys you get more tracks; less on-road travelling; more information on areas you travel through; more accommodation with rural families than with any other tour. You get this because High Country Journeys was developed and has been run by High Country farmers for over twenty years. Many guests comment that it is the personal touch and attention to detail that make these tours so special.

High Country Journeys offers you a package that’s an adventure as well as a holiday, in comfort and style. Take the time to browse our website and see how we can personalise a journey especially for you starting, with Our Tours.
