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.
6 – DAY EXPEDITION
The Hollyford/Pyke Loop
If you’re after serious adventure, look no further, you’ve found it! Hollyford/Pyke loop by packraft is quite possibly the greatest guided trip in all of New Zealand! You’ll use packrafts to traverse over 150 kilometers of pristine fiordland wilderness, access remote coastlines, see incredible wildlife, and enjoy complete solitude for 5 nights and six days.
3 – DAY EXPEDITION
Welcome to the ‘real’ world of packrafting! This standard 3 night trip will give you a first hand glimpse into what these boats make possible. We’ll cruise down the Waiau river into lake Manapouri, paddling our way across the lake and its stunning islands for an ascent of the iconic Monument, staying each night either classic kiwi huts or making camp on pristine sandy beaches. This trip is suitable for first time packrafters!
