See Fiordland National Park from the water and the air on this amazing journey through the Kepler Mountains. Travel by jet boat along the Waiau River to Lake Manapouri before boarding your seaplane for an absolutely incredible perspective on this World Heritage Area.
Your journey begins with an exhilarating jet boat ride down the Waiau river. A picturesque spot, the Waiau river is lined by ancient beech tree forest and is the Anduin River; the great river of Middle Earth! Featured in the opening scene from The Lord of the Rings! In between the high speed ride and fast spins, you'll stop in some quiet and tranquil spots, to soak up the amazing surrounds, spot a few brown and rainbow trout in the crystal-clear water, and learn about the unique environment and fascinating history.
Suddenly, find yourself out on the breath-taking Lake Manapouri. Surrounded by mountains that have been carved by snow and ice over centuries, experience a sense of wonderment as you gaze at the magnificent mountains and sit in awe of their sheer beauty.
Get a taste of adventure as you explore the ancient surrounds with your Fiordland Jet guide on a short nature walk. Learn about the unique flora and fauna of the area.
Surrounded by the stunning Cathedral Peaks on Lake Manapouri, you'll transfer straight from the jet boat to the float plane for an unreal 15 minute scenic flight over the magnificent Kepler Mountains! Finish it all off with a landing back on Lake Te Anau with an experience you'll never forget!
