Bookings are closed for the 2016 season. However if you have a date in mind for the 2017 season we are noe accepting bookings.The new updated 2017 info is available, we can email or post this to you upon receiving your enquiry.

The price for the 2017 season is $2360 per person this is for the original partial self guided “Heart of High Country” tour . This iincludes 7 nights accommodation and 6 days four wheel driving. Included is all accommodation, all meals and track access. We have three fully guided tour options for 2017, we have more details in the information pack.

Some people are getting confused between our trip and some of the other 4×4 trips available. High Country Journeys is still the only partial self guided, self driven trip available. This means that you can travel at your own pace, stop and have lunch when you feel like it, stop and have a walk and not travel in other vehicles dust. High Country Journeys is also the only 4×4 trip that is home hosted in a high standard of accommodation with all meals provided. High Country journeys is the only 4×4 trip where you can choose your own start date. We still have some tracks that are only accessible to High Country Journeys. High Country Journeys has been running these 4×4 trips through out the South Island for 20 years. 99% of our clients are New Zealanders.

Also if you are thinking of hiring the 4×4 rental company gets very booked up over the summer. You can contact Hire Pool 4WD vehicle rentals in Christchurch. The basic rate is $129.00 per day, includes GST and insurance, but quite a big excess. They will deliver vehicle to the airport for a small fee. The most suitable vehicle you will hire will be the 4WD Toyota Hilux double cab.

Best way of contact for the vehicle hire is to email christchurch.vehicles@hirepool.co.nz or phone 03 3488 219 and speak to either Glenn or a lady called Dee.

We have recently invited our 2016 guests to complete a survey on how they found their “High Country Journey” and the response has been fantastic with excellent reviews with people going into a prize draw.
