About Us

4WD Tekapo is an exciting addition to our 50,000 acre working sheep farm here in the Mackenzie region. The high country makes a great location for our tours, with stunning views of Lake Tekapo, the Aoraki Mount Cook National Park. 

For generations, our family has dedicated our lives to farming the mountainous areas of the Mackenzie. Leaving a legacy for the future is important to us, and we hold our conservation values close to our hearts. Each season brings something new and unique to the surrounding mountainous areas of the farm, and we cherish the diversity it offers. We’re committed to preserving the spectacular natural landscapes on our land by managing the biodiversity. We have plenty of native plants and animals and enjoy sharing our knowledge of the history of the area with our guests. We understand that our experiences should be unforgettable. That’s why we provide an experience that will leave a lasting impression on you. As we own the property, we can arrange tours at short notice.

We are also part of the larger Go Tekapo organisation which runs a host of other tourism activities on Mount Hay station and our other parts of the farm. This includes: Silver River Stargazing, Lake Tekapo Petting Zoo, Lake Tekapo Farm Tours, Fish Tekapo, Hike Tekapo, 4WD Tekapo and Snow Tekapo. See more here:
