We had an amazing time with Kelly out on the big family ATV. Our boys (2&7) had an amazing time and my mum who is 64 and had never done anything like it before was blown away by the awesome experience. Our Guide Kelly was full of local knowledge and customized the tour to our needs. It was great for the little kids to get out and have an adventure!

Our tour included amazing views of Cardrona, a working sheep, cattle and deer farm and lots of local knowledge.

We will definitely visit again next time we holiday in the area.

Did quad biking this morning. Had a blast! An unreal experience with the rough track. Our guide was incredible, extremely nice and took everyone's level of ability into account.
Rained all today and was quite cold up the top of the track, where it was snowing. In winter, would definitely recommend thick waterproof gloves (my biggest problem) and as many socks you can put on!

What a great experience! Thanks Val you did a great job of turning novice’s into fully fledged mountain riders! Up and down steep slopes, crossing flowing rivers and cantering along grassy plains! Highly recommended!

Our family has been coming to Wanaka for the last 10 years and we never got around to trying out the horse riding. Finally my sister and I gave it a crack this year and it was absolutely awesome. I have never ridden a horse, but they help and instruct you as required, plus the horses are very well looked after with a delightful temperament (I had Ginger Bear, a gorgeous 20 year old horse who knew the route like the back of his hoof). You’re taken on a wonderful tour of the area led by the knowledgeable and bubbly Kelly who even gets the horses trotting and cantering which is a real blast! I would highly recommend this to anyone in the area - 3.5 hours goes by very fast and for the price, it’s 100% worth it! I’ll be going back next time I’m there.

The mountain view here is so great, I saw many cows and sheep as well. Great journey for an adventurous heart!

I had an epic journey with Sally at afternoon, even I never tried quad bike before, she taught me very well. she looked back very frequently to see if I’m comfortable and safe, but her speed was not too fast or slow, she made sure that my way of riding is safe and always see her route so I can pick the right way to follow her, I really love the sudden turn and slopes and her guiding made it supper safe. I feel like I can be a good rider! she took pictures for me and told me about the history of the huge farm and many things. For more than 2 hours’ quad bike experience after a rainy day, my clothes got pretty muddy, and I enjoyed even much more! I just had sooooo much fun! Thanks for her, this is definetly one of my best day in wanaka! Good town! Good people!
