Dart River Funyaks - Queenstown
Funyak guides know the area intimately and will stop to point out sites of environmental or cultural significance.
Dart River Funyaks provide one-of-a-kind tours in the Queenstown area. Enjoy a thrilling jet boat ride and gliding down the Dart River in your own 'Funyak'.
For those looking to explore some of the untouched areas around Queenstown, Funyak trips combine the thrill of jet boating with the intimacy of kayaking, for a unique adventure through Mount Aspiring National Park's stunning World Heritage area.
The trip starts with an thrilling guided jet boat journey up the Dart River - a shallow, glacier fed river that weaves over a gravelly bed. Funyak guides know the area intimately and will stop to point out sites of environmental or cultural significance.
At the end of the jet boat ride, guests take to the water in 'Funyaks' - inflatable kayaks for better exploration of the river's channels. Being so close to the water allows your guide to point out the subtle rock pools and chasms around the Dart River.
Before heading back, guests are treated to a buffet-style lunch surrounded by mountains in Mount Aspiring National Park. From here, the journey takes you to a backcountry road for a drive through the spectacular park, right past a few Lord of the Rings filming locations.
