Wanaka River Journeys is a half day wilderness jet boating adventure on the Matukituki River beneath spectacular views of Mount Aspiring and her Glaciers.

Feel the breeze in your hair on board Wanaka River Journeys purpose built jet boats as you wind your way past towering mountains, waterfalls and the unique landscapes featured in the Lord of The Rings trilogy. This is a jet boating sensation like no-other!
A Highlight is the remote walk into an ancient beech forest, a great taste of real New Zealand wilderness and an opportunity to enjoy the company of your local guide who will share with you the cultural heritage of our people with humor and inspiration.
For those who want an even MORE exciting experience and an up-close look at the Glaciers, there is an optional helicopter flight from the jet boat and high altitude snow landing overlooking Mount Aspiring.
More than a jet boat ride…..

  • Overall, I think it was a good experience. I was drawn to this tour as I am a big LOTR fan and the description mentioned ‘discover LOTR sites’. As I was on the tour, I was a little bit disappointed that there was no mention of LOTR sites. I became quite disinterested and a little bit let down. Service was quite good. 2

  • Hi MARIONNE We are so sorry that you were disapointed with our lack of LOTR information, It is our company policy for the guides to ask if anyone on board is a LOTR fan and if so the guide will point out the areas of interest and pass on our information. I am so sorry this didn't happen on your tour, we have had a team meeting from your feedback and will ensure that all of our guides ask this question of their passengers (we have so many that are not fans, that is why we ask) Once again my sincerest apologies Sue and the Wanaka River Journeys Team
