Four Peaks High Country Track

A unique walking / mountain biking experience in the pristine high country of the

Four Peaks range, South Canterbury

Four Peaks High Country Track is a walking and/or mountain biking track over a privately owned sheep and cattle station, just 2 hours from Christchurch. This 3day/3night track begins and ends at Four Peaks Station, Geraldine, and traverses 40-60kms of untouched tussock and alpine terrain. Accommodation for up to 8 people is in three authentic musterers’ huts which have been upgraded and fully equipped with cooking utensils, gas burners, flush toilets, hot showers, and comfortable beds.

After arrival at the Track office walkers and/or bikers are briefed about the Track. The walk is a 3 day/3night 40 km track circuit, returning to the starting point at Four Peaks Station. There are 2 MTB options, Endurance 1 night/2 days and the Experienced 2 nights/ 3 days following well marked 4wheel drive tracks on a 60 km circuit. Each day encompasses new and exciting country, climate and topography.

A reasonable to good level of fitness is required due to the varied terrain and steeper sections of hill country. Walkers need good tramping boots, bikers need spare bike tyres/tubes, and appropriate clothing for changeable weather conditions, a sleeping bag, a basic first aid kit, and sufficient food and snacks for three days.

This walking/mountain biking track offers a wonderful opportunity to discover South Canterbury’s unspoiled high country environment. Walk price: $295 per person. Mountain Bike price: $275 pp Experienced Option; $215 Endurance Option. Pack transport to the huts is included in all options. The track is open November to April, bookings in groups of up to 8 people ensure exclusive use of the huts and can be made by emailing or telephoning (03) 685 4848.

Experience ‘real’ outdoor New Zealand and have some fun!

We look forward to hearing from you.
