Escape the crowds as we take you on a journey up the glacial carved Rangitata Valley to visit the historic Mesopotamia sheep station. Travelling by 4WD vehicles your guide will describe the areas farming practices, rich history and point out the natural features en-route. We pass by other stations including the historic Mt Peel, and upon reaching Mesopotamia Station visit the Mesopotamia School, shearers quarters, grave site of Dr Sinclair, and the Te Araroa Trail.
Our 4WD takes us high on station tracks and trails through the deer park where you may also see Himalayan Thar, then it’s time to enjoy a home style picnic and refreshments. Take time to walk at your leisure, take photos or just relax to take in the vastness of this valley and the upper reaches of the Rangitata River with a stunning panorama of glaciers and snowfields.
