Experience the wilderness of the South Island in three ways

Explore the highlights of New Zealand's South Island. An adventure in three ways: A jet boat. A scenic helicopter ride. And a hike over a mountain. Along the way, your local guide and pilot will share stories of the history and nature of the region.

Your adventure begins with a scenic helicopter flight over Mount Aspiring National Park, listed as a World Heritage site. Located at the southern end of the Southern Alps, it is one of New Zealand’s bigger national parks at 355,543 hectares. Soak up the aerial views of ice carved mountains and glaciers.

After landing in the remote Siberia Valley, glacially carved, you will endeavour on a three-hour walk. Set off towards the clear waters of the Siberia Stream and follow the walking track. This is an unforgettable wilderness experience. A walk in the heart of pure New Zealand nature.

Finally, you will tear up the icy blue waters of Makarora and Wilkin Rivers on a jet boat ride. A glacial mountain river, surrounded by ice-capped mountain tops and native bush, it is the ultimate adventure. The company has been operating since 1968 and are pioneers of shallow water jet boating and wilderness discovery in New Zealand.
