1. Wanaka: Jet Boat & Wilderness Walk
Join the longest and most spectacular jet boat tour in New Zealand on a half-day adventure from Wanaka. Travel at speed over the shallow braids of the Matukituki River, drift into turns and experience exciting spins! Stop in deep pools to breathe in the magic of the landscape and hear stories about the land from the local guides. Then, get off the beaten track on a 50-minute nature walk through the moss covered forests, waterfalls and glacial streams of Mount Aspiring National Park. Walk in awe beneath Avalanche Glacier (when conditions permit) or go into McGills Creek to enjoy one of the most beautiful and serene forest walks. Hear stories about this unique ice-carved landscape and get unmissable photo opportunities of the towering glaciers, shimmering waters and more. After your walk, you'll get to enjoy another ride in the jet boat back down the river. Your complimentary shuttle bus will be waiting to return you to Wanaka Town Centre.
