What you need to know

Experience the ultimate Wilderness adventure in the Makarora region in New Zealand's South Island with this Helicopter Flight, Trek and Jet Boat adventure. Combining three adventurous and scenic activities into one action-packed day, this is one of the best ways to explore this Queenstown-Lakes District.

The first part of the adventure sees you climb into a helicopter for a 20-minute scenic flight over the region. Accompanied by an experienced and local pilot you'll be treated to impressive views of Mt Aspiring National Park's glacial lakes and natural beech forest from above while also enjoying the informative commentary of the region.

Once the pilot has set the helicopter down in Siberia Valley you'll lace up your hiking shoes and embark on a 3-hour trek through the luscious valley. Ideal for a range of fitness levels, this trek provides you with impressive views of the region while also getting the chance to get up close to local flora and fauna. The walk ends at the beginning of your next adventure, the jet boat ride.

This thrilling river jet safari will see you zoom around the waters of the Wilkin River and Makarora River, two of the country's stunning wilderness rivers. Doubling as your transfer back to base, the jet boat ride is both adventurous and scenic and is the perfect way to finish off this 4-hour day tour. All safety equipment including life jackets and rain jackets are provided for the jet boat ride to ensure your ride is as safe and comfortable as possible.

Providing you with views of the region this combination tour lets you explore by helicopter, by foot and by boat.
