No previous canoeing experience is required on this tour, and your guide will paddle at a leisurely pace to suit the group.

Travel by coach to Glenorchy, located 28 miles (45 kilometers) from Queenstown. You'll enter the Mount Aspiring National Park, a region characterized by towering mountains, dense forests and of course, winding river valleys – perfect for exploring by canoe and boat!

After a comprehensive safety briefing get kitted up with equipment: lifejacket, wetsuit with booties, fleece and a dry bag. Then, hop aboard your jet boat and hold on tight as your guide speeds you through the waters of the Dart River, while explaining the countryside’s highlights.

Once you've ventured deeper into the wilderness of the park, swap the jet boat for your inflatable canoe (seats 2 or 3 people max) and paddle out behind your guide in a flotilla, exploring the hidden side streams, rock pools and chasms that make the Dart River so special. Stop for a buffet lunch laid out on tables in a grassy area and surrounded by the gloriously isolated scenery of Mount Aspiring National Park – featured in the Oscar-winning films of The Lord of the Rings series.

After lunch, continue along the Dart River in your canoe, soaking up the gorgeous countryside and watching out for rare fauna and wildlife like red deer and yellow-crowned parakeets. At the end of this exciting adventure hop back on board your coach and relax on the return journey to Queenstown.
