The Defender High Country Experience
The Defender High Country Experience is the ultimate tour of the South Island, combining a hosted luxury experience with the unmatched capability of the Land Rover Defender in its natural habitat.
Earlier this year, we hosted four drive tours over four inimitable days, taking guests through the rugged, picturesque high country of Central Otago whilst enjoying some of the best hospitality and cuisine the region has to offer.
For the first night of the tours, guests stayed at the five-star Gibbston Valley Lodge & Spa. This stylish accommodation is situated amongst its historic vineyard and organic winery, located just 20 minutes from Queenstown Airport. During their stay, guests experienced onsite spa treatments and wine tasting followed by a private three-course dinner in the stylish Cellar room.
