Description

Immerse yourself in the rugged wilderness of the West Coast on a 3-day guided rafting adventure.  Paddle grade 3-4 rapids of the Landsborough Valley, through dense rain forest, taking in hanging glaciers and wildlife.  Three course meals, NZ wine and helicopter transfers included. A perfect mix of tranquility and pure adventure waiting for you!

Day 1
Queenstown Rafting will collect you from your accommodation before traveling to Cavells Rafting Base where you will meet your guides, pack your gear into dry bags and be sized for your rafting clothing. The bus will depart from Cavells and begin a 3-hour drive to Clarke Bluff via Wanaka and Makarora, stopping for photos and lunch along the way. Upon arrival to Clarke Bluff you will board your helicopter for a flight through the Landsborough Valley to the first night's camp. Settle in, unpack and explore the magnificent surrounds or just relax in the peaceful environment and enjoy a delicious three-course meal prepared for you.

Day 2
Begin with a leisurely cooked breakfast before preparing to leave camp for your first rafting adventure. A full safety briefing with information on river protocol will be given before you depart. Day two involves 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 the river to Harpers Bluff, 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, a leisurely float to the take out point at Clarke Bluff, where you board the bus back to Queenstown, arriving at approximately 7.00 p.m.
