Explore and enjoy the rugged back country terrain at Walter Peak by electric trail bikes for a fun, unique way to see the region. With a cruise across the stunning Lake Wakatipu, this is a day to remember.
Board the historic TSS Earnslaw vintage steamship for a spectacular cruise across Lake Wakatipu to Walter Peak. At Walter Peak High Country Farm you’ll meet your guide who will provide you with a briefing of the electric trail bikes before you set off to explore the rugged back country terrain.
This unique experience provides a fun, low impact activity in peaceful and stunning surroundings. You will be guided through gentle rolling farmland, then climb "The Hill" and take in the views of the Colonel's Homestead and beautiful Lake Wakatipu below. Then ride the undulating tracks towards the lakeside peninsula at Beach Point reserve. Here there is a stop for refreshments and time for you to learn about the history of Walter Peak and high country farming. Your guide will also update you on the conservation efforts to remove the invasive wilding pine trees, replacing them with pockets of native plant and bush.
Return back to the farm after riding the flat natural terraces overlooking the lake, soaking in the stunning alpine scenery. There's time to visit the gift shop and take photos before boarding the TSS Earnslaw for your return cruise.
There is a maximum of 6 participants per guide.
Protective clothing will be provided (overalls, gloves, helmet & goggles). Riders will need to wear closed-in footwear.
