Travel deep into breathtaking Mount Aspiring National Park!
Start your experience with a scenic drive from Queenstown to Glenorchy. Enjoy the fantastic lakeside scenery as you listen to entertaining narrative from your local driver describing Lake Wakatipu and its many legends.
After arriving in Mount Aspiring National Park, experience an exhilarating jet boat adventure up the famous Dart River, through the shallow braided river channels and deep into this World Heritage listed area. Hold on tight as we race along the glacier fed rivers, taking in the spectacular surrounding scenery.
After this ultimate adrenalin rush, it's time to jump aboard our unique 'Funyak' inflatable canoes and paddle (or drift) for two hours downstream.
Along the way explore the magical hidden side streams with their deep emerald green pools, ancient native forest waterfalls and marvel at the sky piercing mountain peaks. Take your time and find those ‘special spots’ where flora, fauna and the
power of nature combine to create magic. You will also stop along the way and enjoy a delicious wilderness buffet lunch.
Next, we board our bus for a back-road glacial valley drive. Learn about the history and developments of this area whilst taking in scenery that you have to see to believe it. Along the way back you will stop at various locations used in the Lord of the Rings films.
You will then arrive back in Queenstown after an unforgettable adventure filled day! This really is a spectacular area of New Zealand that cannot be missed!
