Descubra a beleza da flora intocada do Parque Nacional Mount Aspiring considerada Patrimônio Mundial da UNESCO neste passeio de um dia de 'funyak' (canoa inflável) no Rio Dart e uma excursão de barco a jato saindo de Queenstown! Viaje de ônibus até Glenorchy, onde sua aventura começa e, em seguida, suba a bordo de um jet boat e navegue pelo pitoresco Rio Dart. Acelerando em meio a uma paisagem de extraordinária beleza natural, sua excursão passa na zona rural de "Middle-earth" que apareceu na trilogia popular do filme 'Senhor dos Anéis'. Em um trecho isolado do rio, troque o barco por seu funyak e, em seguida, reme seguindo seu guia atencioso antes de parar para um almoço com bufê ao ar livre!
Não é necessário experiência anterior em canoagem nesta excursão porque seu guia irá remar em um ritmo agradável, adequado para o grupo.
This was a fun trip. In August it was very, very cold so wrap up warm. The jet boat tour is not for anyone who suffers from motion-sickness, such as myself. I hadn't taken this into consideration when booking the trip. The water was crystal clear, but not quite the turquoise colour of the brochures!
Staff were helpful and friendly.
This tour is SO MUCH FUN!! It was cold and rainy when we ended up going but we didn't even care. The sights are beautiful and they make sure you have a good time. Lunch was good but if you're looking for something warm and filling you might be disappointed. It's part of the experience, so just have fun with it!
Although a bit expensive this experience is worth every penny. The logistics for this trip is amazing. Never felt unsafe or in jeopardy as these guys really know what they are doing. The jetboat ride is quite entertaining. If you want to get wet go to the back of the boat. The funyak was another amazing experience although it could be challenging for some. Lunch provided was also very good: picnic style with sandwiches, fruits, pastry and hot beverages. We enjoyed a windy and chilly day which kept the insatiable sand flies at bay but whenever wind stopped they were really a nuisance. They bite so wear bug repellent. If I go back to Queenstown I will take this tour again.
Wow! What a GREAT day! Gareth, our very funny, very professional kiwi guide, accompanied by his very diverse and competent team, made this trip extra special. We were treated to awesome Lord of the Rings-type scenery from the time we left Queenstown to when we returned. A 1.5 hour bus ride was followed by a one hour exciting JetBoat ride up the Dart River with spins and thrills dress warmly - it was 43 degrees with a sparkling clear blue sky the morning we left...in the summer early January, followed by a 3-4 hour rubber canoe experience back down the river completed our day. A tasty picnic lunch was provided halfway back on the side of a river bend with a side canoe trip inside a chasm with a waterfall fed with chilly waters from the glaciers. During the entire day we saw a total of 3 other human beings hiking on the side of the river. The scenery was gorgeous beyond belief the river water was clear, crisp and mouth-wateringly delicious. If you can't paddle a canoe, have a problem with paddling a canoe, don't go. Otherwise, don't miss this terrific experience.
