Day 1

Posted on Posted in Itinerary-packrafter

After coffee in town we’ll head to the start of the Waiau River, a few short minutes from Te Anau. We’ll spend the morning learning about the boats and doing some training in the calmer upper sections of the Waiau to make sure everyone is comfortable in the packrafts. We’ll have lunch on the river and run several easy but fun rapids as we make our way to the secluded shallow bay where we’ll either camp or stay in the quaint hut of the same name. Beach combing, bonfires, and swimming are all evening possibilities!
