That was such a fantastic day out! Can't really describe the beauty of the surrounding landscapes.. it seriously left me out of words!!! After a 45-minute bus journey to Glenorchy, the morning began with an exhilarating jet boat tour and a fun guide that would stop in-between exciting spins to explain the locations and point out where some of 'The Lord of the Ring' scenes were filmed! As the morning mist cleared out we met some other guides that briefed us about the 'Funyak'! Its name really explains it all: it is FUN! And is not really hard to paddle on it, although it requires some team effort at times! Our guides were great. Very helpful when needed and so much fun to spend the day with. What else can I say? You have to try it yourself to understand what I mean.. So worth it! A little piece of advice: bring some sun protection (sun glasses/hat/sun screen) and warm clothes - it is chilly in the morning! And don't forget your insect repellent: sand-flies are evil!!!
