Wanaka Jet Boat & Wilderness Walk

Wanaka Jet Boat & Wilderness Walk

Enjoy spectacular views of Mount Aspiring and her Glaciers on this half day wilderness jet boating in wilderness walk in Mt Aspiring National Park.

Feel the breeze in your hair on board a purpose built jet boat as you wind your way past towering mountains, waterfalls and the unique landscapes featured in the Lord of The Rings trilogy. See Rocky Hill where the fellowship was filmed heading South from Rivendell on a jet boating sensation like no-other!

A highlight of this section of your journey is the remote walk into an ancient beech forest. This is a great introduction to the New Zealand wilderness while walking easy terrain suitable for people of all ages. Depending on where the River Flow allows the jet boat to beach we have three beautiful areas to explore. McGill's Creek; where we follow the creek to a waterfall. Mill Creek; walk through the forest to a spectacular gorge. The East Branch; walk beneath amazing scenery to a waterfall. On this walk, enjoy the company of your guide as he shares with you the culture of our people and the natural forces that created this unique landscape. It's worth taking your good camera!

End your journey with another exhilarating jet boat road ride down river to where the shuttle will pick you up & return you to Wanaka.
