More information

This is a leisurely, scenic and informative trip through the Haast UNESCO World Heritage Area.

A short bush walk leads you to the river’s edge where your boat is easily boarded by step-on front loading access.

Passengers cruise up the river, enjoying informative commentary from one of the local highly experienced safari guides.

Crossing the major Alpine fault line and passing through areas of sub-tropical rainforest and ancient stands of Kahikatea provide fascinating natural history facts.

There is an opportunity to step out of the boat and absorb the magnificent views.

While there is a terrific scenic value in good weather, during rain mist shrouds, waterfalls are flowing and light reflects multiple shades of green in the native bush backdrop.
