Ultimate Wanaka Jet Boat 4WD 300x125 - Glacier River Safari

Begin your day with a thrilling jet boat journey travelling up the pristine, glacially fed waters of the Matukituki river. Traveling at up to 80 kph, you will have ample chance to take in the gorgeous views of this glorious landscape as the jetboat driver spins through 360 degrees to take full advantage of your surroundings and finding time for seldom seen glaciers and photo opportunities.

On our guided journey we will bear witness to the awe inspiring Mount Aspiring, as we walk through the wilderness to a beautiful waterfall, and learn how this amazing landscape was forged by the awesome forces of nature all around us.

After your Jet boat, you can enjoy a picnic lunch beside the sparkling Matukituki River before being picked up by your 4WD truck for your afternoon adventure. Witnessing Red Deer, Cattle and Sheep in their natural environments, travelling through alpine meadows and ancient forests, past significant sites of European settlers’ heritage, learning what life was like for the first locals in Wanaka and gazing at the astounding landscapes famously put to film in the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies.

This unforgettable adventure tour package will leave you with lasting memories and photographs to keep with you forever.
