The Funyak Adventure begins with a jet boat ride from Glenorchy up the Dart River deep into the heart of the world-renowned Mount Aspiring National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
After your jet boat ride, you will travel back down stream in your unique Funyaks (inflatable canoes) working your way through pristine waters as they flow from the Southern Alps to Lake Whakatipu. Explore channels and side-streams in this spectacular wilderness location and witness the native flora and fauna of the area.
Take a break at the rivers edge to enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch while you take in the sounds of the native birds and the serenity of the native beech forest.
Finish up your epic adventure by jumping aboard the 4WD coach to travel through some of New Zealand’s most renown filming locations, seen in movies such as the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and X-Men Origins – Wolverine.
Glenorchy is 45 minutes outside of Queenstown and one of the most picturesque drives on offer in the South Island. Ask your Snowscene consultant how best to incorporate this Funyak Adventure in your next New Zealand itinerary; as a self-drive day trip or with Queenstown transfers included.
