Directions to Wanaka River Journeys
A thrilling half day wilderness jet boat adventure, operating in the stunning landscape of World Heritage Mount Aspiring National Park. The only jet boat company offering hanging glaciers, stunning views of Mount Aspiring and a breathtaking wilderness walk.
Reaching exhilarating speeds on purpose built jet boats, your expert driver will twist and turn on the pristine waters of Matukituki Wanaka River, zooming past waterfalls, towering mountains and fascinating birdlife. Not only will you be whisked through some amazing World Heritage landscapes, but you'll also be treated to a wilderness walk into the Matukituki Valley - a wonderland carved by ice and used extensively in the filming of The Lord Of The Rings film trilogy.
As part of your trip, you'll embark on a remote walk through ancient beach forest with local guides, who will share inspirational stories of the land with a touch of humour. A highlight of the trip, this is an opportunity to experience the genuine New Zealand wilderness.
For a closer look at the glacier area beneath Mount Aspiring, there is a helicopter ride ready to take you from the jet boat. Float over hanging valleys where glaciers once lay and see waterfalls cascading from beneath giant walls of ice into the rivers and streams that flow into the Matukituki River. The flight also includes a high altitude snow landing overlooking Mount Aspiring.
