The glacier-fed Dart River weaves its way through Mount Aspiring National Park, a stunning landscape of ancient beech forest and mist-clad mountains. On this full-day tour you first journey from Queenstown along the edge of Lake Wakatipu to Glenorchy, a tiny settlement at the far end of the lake. Here you board a jet boat and take a thrilling ride along the Dart River in to Te Waipounamu World Heritage Area, learning about the rich ecosystem and Maori legends along the way. You disembark for an informative 30-minute guided forest walk before returning along the river to Glenorchy.
