Jet Boating, Mt Aspiring National Park

A jetboat adventure into Mt Aspiring National Park is so much more than a thrilling ride of adrenaline-spiked fun – it is a pilgrimage into the heart of the great southern wilderness of New Zealand.

From Wanaka in the south and Makarora in the north, two glacier-fed braided rivers wind their way deep into the Southern Alps. Both these rivers, the Matukituki and the Makarora, deliver exhilarating trips that will steal your breath in other ways.

For those with a rod or two in hand or those wanting to get even further off the beaten track, jetboat operators offer exclusive tramping and fishing access into the hinterland of the park. And for those wishing to see the park from a different perspective, combo trips are available. Meet your helicopter or plane, fly into paradise, and get a bird’s eye view of the magnificent Mt Aspiring National Park.
