Full description
For the experience of a lifetime, join Wanaka River Journeys on New Zealand’s only Jet Boat, Walk & Packraft adventure, deep into the mountains of middle earth: Matukituki Valley.

Jet boat the spectacular Matukituki River beneath glaciers and Mount Aspiring. Speed through shallow braids, drift into turns and hold on for cool spins. Travel to a place that is special and serene, surrounded by mountains, glaciers, waterfalls and forests to explore on foot a secluded mountain pathway. Walk 30 mins with a “pack on your back” to tranquil turquoise pools for lunch & photos before the fun of packrafting begins.

Packrafts are perfect for those who want a real wilderness experience away from the crowds. On-board this small, fun & stable craft, follow the rivers’ flow way, ride the wave trains, and paddle into calm pools to surround yourself in nature in an area so breathtaking you won’t want to leave. This is the perfect mix of fun, excitement and adventure in the most beautiful landscape there is.
