WHAT TO EXPECT
Journey deep into the heart of Mt Aspiring National Park - a world heritage area known for its beautiful river valleys, high mountains and remote wilderness.
Funyaks (inflatable canoes) are truly unique and the only adventure activity of its type in the Queenstown region. Combine this with wilderness jet boating and you have the best ways to explore this incredible corner of the globe. On this tour, you'll explore the Dart River and come across hidden side streams, dramatic chasms and rock pools.
Dart River Funyaks are fun, easy and perfect for the whole family - you'll be able to paddle gently out onto the crystal clear waters, float downstream and explore the area at your own pace. Get up close with nature before enjoying a picnic lunch, passing through paradise and then heading on to Glenorchy. You'll then travel a back-country route through locations used in movies to illustrate the Middle Earth - Lord of the Rings fans rejoice!

- Dress in wet suits and warm clothing at Glenorchy
- Jet boat up the Dart River for an hour into the Wilderness
