Jet boat et marche sauvage


Accompagnez-nous pendant une demi-journée pour vivre l'aventure en jet boat la plus exaltante de Nouvelle-Zélande, au cœur du parc national du Mont Aspiring dans une région classée au patrimoine mondial, à la découverte des décors à couper le souffle des montagnes et glaciers immortalisés lors du tournage du Seigneur des Anneaux et du Hobbit. Nous vous proposons un parcours sur rivière anastomosée peu profonde, la plus palpitante des expériences de jet boating, avec des guides locaux impatients de partager leur connaissance de notre pays.

Les tours du glacier Avalanche à l'horizon, le tumulte des chutes d'eau qui surgit sous la glace…

 

ET une randonnée dans la nature reculée le long de la vallée de la Matukituki, à travers l'un des paysages sculptés par la glace les plus authentiquement uniques au monde. Pendant les mois d'été, marchez au pied de l'impressionnant glacier suspendu nommé Avalanche vers une ancienne forêt et une chute d'eau, dans un lieu si serein et particulier que vous ne voudrez plus le quitter. Pour celles et ceux qui aimeraient pousser plus loin l'exploration, nous proposons trois fantastiques options depuis le jet boat.

Survol du glacier en hélicoptère en option C'est une occasion unique d'embarquer depuis le bord de la rivière au creux des montagnes pour un vol palpitant qui vous permettra d'admirer au plus près les glaciers. Découvrez les vallées suspendues où les glaciers font une halte et admirez les chutes d'eau qui dévalent la pente en cascade sous les géants de glace, avant d'atterrir sur le glacier Isobel pour prendre quelques photos. Le vol à bord des appareils d'Aspiring Helicopters dure environ 25 minutes.

Safari à la ferme en 4x4 en option Après l'excursion en jet boat et la marche du matin, déjeunez sur les berges de la rivière avant de rejoindre Ridgeline Adventures pour un circuit aventure en 4x4 sur les petites routes privées de West Wanaka Station, au milieu des hardes de cerfs et des troupeaux de bovins et de moutons, non loin des majestueux pics coiffés de neige et des glaciers du parc national du Mont Aspiring.

Packraft Wanaka Pour vivre une expérience unique, rejoignez-nous pour prendre part à la seule aventure jet boat, marche et kayak gonflable de Nouvelle-Zélande, au cœur des montagnes de la Terre du Milieu. Matinée jet boat, puis marche de 30 minutes « sac au dos » vers de paisibles bassins d’eau turquoise pour déjeuner et prendre des photos, avant d’entamer une amusante séance de packrafting. À bord de ces petits bateaux très stables, descendez la rivière au fil de l’eau, chevauchez les successions de vagues et pagayez dans les bassins d’eaux calmes pour vous immerger dans la nature, dans une région tellement à couper le souffle que vous ne voudrez plus partir.
