Fiordland National Park Packrafting

Discover the real New Zealand wilderness areas on a Fiordland National Park Packrafting trip. Combine hiking and rafting on these remote regions of New Zealand, normally only visited by experienced backcountry explorers. For those with only a limited time in Te Anau, our packrafting day trips into Fiordland National Park are a great way to unwind. Combine rafting the Waiau River, used in the filming of the Lord of the Rings movies, with hiking on the Kepler Track, one of New Zealand's Great Walks. Alternatively combine rafting the Waiau River, with the more demanding rapids of the Eglinton River in the afternoon.

For those looking to escape the office desk or the humdrum of daily life for a while, nothing beats our 3 and 6 day Wilderness Packrafting trips get you right away, in the unspoilt beauty that is New Zealand. Camp overnight beside a beach, or in a back country hut. With our Packrafter Wilderness Experience you tavel down the Waiau River to Lake Manapouri, before hiking to the top of the Monument, to take in the spectacular views. The Fiordland Explorer Packrafting Expedition takes you down the remote Hollyford and Pike Rivers, and across Lakes McKerrow, Wilmot and Alabaster. Hike the rocky coastline around Long Reef Point, and explore the waterfalls of the Hollyford Track.
