RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
Rally your mates and spend three blissful hours fishing on the calm and reflective waters of Lake Mapourika. Receive expert tuition from your local guide as you fish for brown trout and salmon, whilst cooking up a storm on the BBQ using your own food.
What's better than a good old-fashioned Kiwi BBQ? A fishing charter on Lake Mapourika with a BBQ burning! The lake is well-stocked with good sized brown trout and salmon, and your expert guides will be there to provide all the necessary instruction and equipment to help you reel in these beauties. You'll learn to use various fishing techniques such as trolling, harling and spinning, and the best part is, if your catch is legal and in season, you'll get to take it home. The onboard BBQ comes with everything you need, you just need to supply food and drinks to prepare on board as you watch the fishing lines. It's the perfect way to spend three hours in the beautiful glacier country.
Please note: You must have a fishing licence. Licences are valid for 24 hours at a cost of $21 per person for NZ residents and $34 for non-residents. Licenses are available online from the NZ Fish and Game website.
Please allow three hours for this experience.
