Description

Enjoy an extremely comfortable 4WD luxury bus, as you journey from Christchurch on your way to your destination - a fully-fledged working sheep station in New Zealand's high-country, take in the truly breath-taking scenery of the Southern Alps including sites from “Lord of the Rings” Middle Earth (home of the mythical people of Rohan). Braided rivers, green pastures, forests, deer, horses, sheep, hidden tracks, and absolutely remarkable mountain scenery.

Fully inclusive price includes pick up from major Christchurch city hotels, scrumptious special lunch, morning and afternoon tea, luxury coach travel including onboard WIFI and USB - and a lively, entertaining and highly knowledgeable tour guide who can relate all the history, myths and legends!

As a special option (available at extra cost) , be transported back in time enjoying a truly unique experience: a nostalgic but comfortable wagon ride pulled by some “gentle giants” - a team of Clydesdale horses - into the spectacular Aotearoa back-country highlands. The ride goes off the beaten track into a magical landscape that can’t be experienced from the road.With loads of great photo opportunities and the chance to experience the high country at the horses’ pace. Your wagon ride will definitely be a memorable trip. Comfortable off-road wagons seat 14 people - but larger groups can also be accommodated. We generally hitch up a 6 Clydesdale horse team in 2 rows of 3.

  • Round trip transportation to and from your central city hotel - Or, hop on before at departure point

  • Live tour commentary provided in English - “Dr G” is not just your average tour guide!

  • Scenery stops in “Middle Earth” (Lord of the Rings) - and other places - along the way

  • Live entertainment (but your hosts will need your encoruagement!)

This was such a great day! Gary and Nicole were welcoming, attentive, and thoughtful. It was evident that they wanted us all to have a great experience with them. Even the picnic lunch was delicious! Once at the farm, Erin's experience handling those beautiful horses was clear - she was great! You undoubtedly want to book a tour with Maossie Tours! You won't regret it!
