Wanaka River Journeys

Jet Boat, Walk & Packraft, three incredible adventures in one day

Jet Boat & Wilderness Walk

Come with us on the most exciting half day Jet Boating adventure in New Zealand beneath the spectacular scenery of Glaciers & Lord of the Rings film locations, into Mount Aspiring National Park, part of Te Wahipounamu World Heritage area.

Jet boat the spectacular Matukituki River beneath glaciers and Mount Aspiring. Speed through shallow braids, drift into turns and hold on for cool spins, traveling to a place special and serene, surrounded by mountains, glaciers, waterfalls and forests.

Walk with your pack raft & guide through the forest to our remote “beach” beneath a Glacier. This beautiful short hike to a calm and peaceful pool is a taste of the spectacular river adventure to come; here you will inflate and learn to paddle your rafts, have fun in the river flow & rock the photos before lunch.

Packraft this pristine glacial water-way, ride the wave trains, and paddle into calm eddies to surround yourself in nature in a valley so breathtaking you wont want to leave. These small, lightweight and stable inflatable craft are perfect for those who want a real wilderness river experience in a safe and guided environment. The perfect mix of fun, excitement and adventure in the most beautiful landscape there is.

Hi Simon, I just wanted to thank you for helping me fulfill a long term dream in shooting a trophy elk. I couldn't be happier with the end result – definitely one of the only animals I've ever shot that doesn't suffer ground shrinkage as you get up to it! It just got bigger and bigger! A lot of amazing country was covered in the two days it took to find him - couldn't have done it without your help!

This is the second time I've been hunting with Cardrona Outfitters and it won't be the last (don't tell my wife that though)! Feel free to share my comments as I'd highly recommend you to anyone considering going to NZ hunting!
