Dart River Wilderness Jet

The Wilderness Jet journeys deep into the heart of the world-renowned Mt Aspiring National Park, where myth, heritage and fantasy come to life. Here, you can experience a unique combination of breath-taking scenery and an exhilarating ride as you follow the braided, glacier-fed rivers by jet boat. Hear about flora, fauna and history on a rolling forest walk. On a backroad tour of Paradise immerse yourself in scenes and backdrops from The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies, learn about the Pounamu (Greenstone) that made the Dart River a key trading route for early Māori and tales of early settlers who carved rich farms from the rugged landscape.
