Packrafting Queenstown specialise in small group guided packrafting trips and courses from our base in Queenstown New Zealand.
Queenstown is known as the adventure capital of New Zealand and offers some of the most beautiful and pristine environments to explore.
What is Packrafting
In a nutshell packrafting is a combination of hiking and paddling. Packrafts are small and light enough to pack inside your backpack when you go hiking. Yet when inflated they become fully functional river rafts.
Packrafts allow us to undertake journeys that were once impossible — we explore rivers that are too remote, or too shallow for traditional kayaks.
Our aim is to explore in a way which preserves the natural values which have brought us there. Our small groups never exceed six people, and we operate under the principles of Leave No Trace so that our wild places remain just as we found them.
Despite their small size and weight, Packrafts are incredibly tough, easy to paddle and capable of handling some challenging whitewater. Our trips are designed to take full advantage of this as we hike, bike and paddle through the most gorgeous packing scenery in New Zealand.
