THE ULTIMATE DAY TRIP
PACKRAFTING EXPERIENCE NEW ZEALAND
Packrafting, “A Journey of Discovery”
Welcome to the unique and unparalleled experience of packrafting – a mix of hiking and paddling that takes you on a journey of discovery, exploring rugged landscapes by foot and “mild to wild” waters by boat.
What we do:
- Small & personal Groups of max 6 people
- Day tours for packrafting beginners
- Multi day tours, from beginner friendly overnight trips to a 6 day long expedition
- Packraft Rentals
- Alpacka Raft Sales & Demo Fleet
- Packrafting Online Shop
- Packrafting Rescue & Skill Courses
Packrafting, combining the 2 activities will get us on the rivers, lakes, fiords & ocean and also on those awesome hikes around the country. The concept is simple, the gear is light once you have experienced it you will look at maps in a different way given the fact that you can go places and do routes a “normal” Hiker or Kayaker would not be able to do.
