Overview

The Dart River Jet Wilderness Safari is a diverse adventure exploring spectacular World Heritage wilderness within Mt Aspiring National Park through a combination of exhilarating wilderness jet boating, informative guided ancient forest walk and back-country safari vehicle. Surrounded by awe-inspiring peaks and mysterious hidden valleys shrouded in native Beech forest, your specialist guides will bring to life the variety of landscapes, vegetation and wildlife within this unique area, as well the captivating stories of the original Maori and early pioneers.

On the area’s longest exhilarating wilderness jet boat journey, complete with thrilling jet spins, you’ll navigate the ever changing shallow channels of the glacier fed Dart River’s braided river system, with your expert jet boat driver stopping along the way to highlight and discuss points of interest that make this unique area of natural and cultural importance.

Explore our unique vegetation and wildlife on a guided walk through ancient native forest, and with your professional wilderness guide sharing their intimate knowledge of the area with you you’ll discover why New Zealand is in a very real sense the ‘Ark’ of the ancient super continent Gondwanaland.

Travelling along a back-country route by safari vehicle you’ll learn more about this fascinating area and stop to view some of New Zealand’s most spectacular scenery that has formed the epic backdrop for many international movies, including ‘The Lord of the Rings’.
