Day 1

Start your incredible white water rafting adventure in Queenstown, where you will be transported to meet your guides and collect your camping and rafting equipment.

Board your helicopter or fixed wing plane for a flight across the scenic Landsborough Valley to your first night’s camp. Explore the magnificent surroundings or just relax in the peaceful environment and enjoy a delicious three course meal prepared for you.

Day 2

Begin your morning preparing for your first rafting adventure. A full safety briefing will be given before you depart, followed by a 5 hour river trip ranging from action to the sedate, stopping to enjoy a deli-style picnic lunch above Hellfire Rapid, before continuing down to the second camp stop. There will be time to relax and take in the scenery, or go for a walk before dinner. After dinner explore the surrounds and maybe even discover a glow worm or two!

Day 3

Another hearty breakfast will set you up for the day’s activities. Board your raft and head down river to Purple Creek for lunch and if conditions permit take a side hike to explore the waterfalls. After lunch enjoy a last leisurely float before returning to Queenstown.
