Funyak with Dart River Jet

More Information

With Dart River Jet – the only operator on the Dart River – you’ll journey down an intricate network of braided river channels that shimmer from show-stopping turquoise to opalescent blue. This, the longest and most sensational jet boat journey available in the Queenstown area, is a spectacular adventure that will take you all the way from the head of mighty Lake Wakatipu into the pristine World Heritage Area of Mount Aspiring National Park.

The Funyak trip is the most intimate way to explore and experience every aspect of the amazing Mount Aspiring National Park.

First of all you’ll travel an exciting 1 1⁄4 hours up the Dart River by jet boat; then, you’ll disembark to begin your Funyak journey in one of our unique inflatable ‘Funyak’ canoes. After full instructions, you’ll be free to paddle and drift (under the watchful eye of your professional guide) for a spectacular two hours downstream, taking in all the awe-inspiring sights found amidst the Dart River’s shimmering channels.

You’ll stop amongst the ancient beech forest to enjoy a wilderness buffet lunch and explore the hidden side streams, rock pools and dramatic chasms such as the beautiful Rockburn, before continuing downstream to Paradise, where you’ll be taken by coach to Glenorchy, stopping to view the stunning scenery that has inspired films the world over.
