Directions to Fly-Walk-Jetboat NZ Wilderness Experiences
Southern Alps Air has been flying visitors over New Zealand's dramatic landscape for 30 years, offering visitors incredible views of Mt Aspiring, Fiordland and Mt Cook National Parks.
With guaranteed window seats for all passengers, enjoy the spectacular views from their small and comfortable fixed wing aircraft.
For the ultimate New Zealand wilderness adventure, guests can book the company's Siberia Experience or Blue Pools Nature Experience options which combines a scenic flight, a bush and valley walk and a thrilling jetboat safari.
Siberia Experience: (Fly: 25mins - Walk: 3hrs - Jetboat: 30mins)
The Siberia Experience takes passengers on a thrilling 25-minute flight from Makarora, into the remote Siberia Valley past towering mountains, glaciers, and huge rainforests.
Once in the valley, guests will land and walk in the footsteps of New Zealand's early pioneers as they head along the valley to the crystal clear waters of the Siberia Stream and the walking track. A three-hour bush walk offers the chance to experience the natural beauty of New Zealand including native trees, ferns and native birds, before finishing with an exhilarating 30-minute mountain river jet boat ride back to Makarora.
Blue Pools Experience: (Fly: 30mins - Walk: 2.5hrs - Jetboat: 1hr)
The Blue Pools Experience includes a 30-minute circular flight from Makarora past glaciers and mountains. On returning to the airstrip, a short drive takes guests to the start of the two and a half hour walk to the beautiful Blue Pools. The walk is relatively flat but includes the excitement of crossing four swing bridges as it winds past rivers, meanders through meadows and takes you in and out of the native forest. Spot fish and birdlife during your walk
At the end of the track, a jet boat will be waiting to speed you off on a 1 hour scenic journey through the Makarora Valley to Lake Wanaka before returning guests to Makarora Village.
Both trips operate all year round, weather permitting. Advance booking is recommended.
Siberia Experience - Adult: $370 / Child: (3 - 13) $287
Blue Pools Experience - Adult: $299 / Child: (4 - 15) $287
