Winter in Wanaka is fantastic. The weather is often clear and calm; the mountains are huge and look twice as big covered in snow. And there is Lots to do...

With four ski areas all within a short drive from Wanaka and some of the best heli-ski and heli boarding terrain in the world there is no shortage of choice for a memorable winter holiday.

Whether skiing in Wanaka or skiing in Queenstown, make sure you allow for a day off the slopes to join a Wanaka River Journeys jet boating experience beneath the snow covered mountains and glaciers of the Mount Aspiring National Park.

The Matukituki River is crystal clear and shallow; perfect to showcase our purpose built jet boats that can operate in just inches of water and spin 360 degrees over winter reflections. This is what jet boating is about. AMAZING!

To ensure your comfort our boats have heated hand and foot rails and protective windscreens. Dress as you would for a day on the slopes and come join us for an unforgettable Jet Boat Journey during your snow holiday in New Zealand.
