Day 1. You start early in the morning in Queenstown where you will meet your guides, pack your gear into dry bags and be sized for your rafting clothing. From there it's a spectacular three hour drive to Clarke Bluff via Wanaka and Makarora. Here's where it gets properly exciting as you board your helicopter for a flight up the scenic Landsborough Valley to your first night’s camp. Settle in, unpack and explore the magnificent surroundings or relax in this peaceful environment and enjoy a delicious meal prepared for you.

Day 2. Begin with a leisurely breakfast then prepare to leave camp for your rafting adventure. A full safety briefing and information on river protocol will be given before you depart. Today you have a five hour river trip ranging from full action stations to sedate drifting, stopping to enjoy a deli-style picnic lunch above Hellfire Rapid. You then continue down river arriving at Harpers Bluff, our second camp. There will be time to try out a spot of fishing or go for a walk before dinner. After dinner explore the surrounds and maybe even discover a glow worm or two.

Day 3. Another filling breakfast will set you up for the day’s activities. Board your raft and head down river to Purple Creek for lunch and a side hike to explore the waterfalls. After lunch a leisurely float to our take out point at Clarke Bluff.  You are then shuttled back to Queenstown - arriving in the early evening.
