Quick & easy instant bookings for Wanaka River Journeys
Join Wanaka River Journey's their exciting half day wilderness jet boating adventure, set amongst the spectacular scenery of World Heritage Mount Aspiring National Park.
Feel the thrill of adventure as you travel toward Mount Aspiring and glaciers; past towering mountains, waterfalls and Lord of The Rings film locations on the pristine, glacier fed waters of the Matukituki River. Like rally cars on water, jet boats use sliding turns, 360degree spins and speeds of up to 80kph to navigate this shallow and braided river system. It’s not all about action though…take in peaceful stops in deep pools for amazing photo opportunities; see river birds in their natural environment and maybe even trout if conditions are right. This is a Jet Boating sensation like no other!
Deep in the mountains leave the jet boat for a 50 minute walk into real New Zealand wilderness, a trip highlight, this is an opportunity to experience nature like never before. Walk through ancient beach forests following mountain streams to a waterfall, your local guide sharing with you the stories of the natural forces that created this unique landscape with humour and inspiration. The only jet boat company to see Mount Aspiring and Glaciers- make Wanaka River journeys a number one on your list of things to do while visiting Queenstown and Wanaka.
