Our jet boat and nature walk is a half day guided activity that entails a thrilling jet boat tour up the Matukituki Valley. You will watch the stunning alpine scenery pass by as they speed up the river. One of the highlights being you also get to enjoy a relaxed nature walk through New Zealand wilderness
The Matukituki Valley is an area made famous by the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies. You will be surrounded by beautiful scenery and towering mountains. Speeding along, guests will quickly understand why jet boating is one of the must do tourist attractions in New Zealand. Take in the awe-inspiring views of Mount Aspiring and Avalanche Glacier.
Stopping at the top of the river, you will leave the jet boat for a 50 minute guided walk through beautiful New Zealand landscapes. Alpine meadows, forests and waterfalls can all be seen. In summer months, when conditions allow, guests can walk beneath a hanging glacier.
