Queenstown Cruise & Small Group Scenic Tour | Mt Nicholas Farm Experience

Queenstown Cruise & Small Group Scenic Tour | Mt Nicholas Farm Experience

Board the Spirit of Queenstown vessel, a modern, spacious, purpose-built catamaran and enjoy a return cruise to Mt Nicholas High Country Farm on the western shores of Lake Wakatipu. Soak up the tranquillity of this stunning area while visiting one of New Zealand’s most rugged and remote high country farms.

Mt Nicholas spans 100,000 acres and is home to 30,000 merino sheep. It is one of the most historic and largest stations in New Zealand with landscape surrounded by mountains, glaciers, ice-carved fiords, alpine lakes, forests and snowfields.

This is an exclusive behind-the-scenes visit to a truly authentic, family-run merino sheep farm that produces the highest quality wool for the world-renowned Icebreaker clothing company. Watch as the farm guide rounds up sheep and meet working farm animals used on the farm. Get up close to merino sheep in the woolshed where you will also enjoy a freshly prepared Ploughman’s lunch.
