5 day Hike + Raft Landsborough

A true backcountry experience in the heart of the Southern Alps, this hike/ raft combo is an amazing way to appreciate the unspoiled wilderness of New Zealand. Our adventure crosses the Main Divide on foot, then floats and paddles our way down the remote Landsborough River by raft. A fully guided trip, you will not need to carry heavy backpacks as all food and other necessary equipment will be provided for. This is a journey “off the beaten track”, and takes you to high alpine landscapes and remote country not visited by the average tourist!
