The “Funyak Safari” is a truly unique adventure that combines exhilarating

intimately explore magnificent World Heritage’ wilderness within Mt Aspiring
National Park. Your professional guides will take you on an inspiring adventure through dramatic landscapes where you’ll discover the natural and cultural diversity of this amazing area that make it so rare and special.

An exhilarating wilderness jet boat journey, complete with exciting jet spins, will take you up the ever changing 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 significance within this spectacular environment.

The next part of your adventure then begins and you paddle / drift your own “Funyak” on a fun downstream journey, with your specialist guide pointing out sights and sharing stories of this awe-inspiring area as you explore the shimmering channels of the Dart River as well as hidden side streams, rock pools and dramatic chasms.

You’ll stop along the way and enjoy a delicious wilderness buffet lunch amidst spectacular surrounds before continuing in your “Funyak” downstream to ‘Paradise’, from where you’ll travel via a back-country route through spectacular locations and scenery that has formed the epic backdrop for many international movies, including ‘The Lord of the Rings’.
