Dart River Wilderness Jet offers a stunning combination of adventure and discovery with an exciting jet boat ride up the scenic Dart River, a guided nature walk and backroad tour.
Explore a stunning World Heritage area with a thrilling jet boat ride through Mount Aspiring National Park. Leaving from the quiet town of Glenorchy, Dart River Wilderness Jet takes guests up the Dart River, skimming the shallow water at top speed and getting your blood pumping with exhilarating spins and turns along the way.
Dart River Wilderness Jet guides are local experts, and tours are as informative as they are exciting. Guides will point out areas important to New Zealand's natural and cultural history along the way and will share stories of the Maori and European pioneers who first visited the area.
At the top of the river, the adrenaline rush yields to a peaceful walk through Mount Aspiring National Park. The walk takes guests from the shore of the river into an ancient forest, where you can walk among the smooth, tall trunks and ceiling-like canopies of the native beech trees. See vegetation that exists nowhere else on earth and learn about the flora and fauna that make New Zealand so unique.
Enjoy the scenery further inland as well, as the trip brings you back to Glenorchy overland through the backcountry. The surrounding mountains and forests create a stunning backdrop for the return journey. Pay close attention - you might recognise some of the landscape from your favourite scenes in the Lord of the Rings movies.
