The Hollyford Pyke Expedition combines our 2-day professional packrafting training course with 5-days of adventure around the famous Hollyford Pyke Loop.
During this 5-day/4-night guided packrafting expedition you’ll be travelling from the mountains to the sea, up the coastline and back into the mountains. You will paddle the Hollyford River, Lake McKerrow, Lakes Wilmot and Alabaster, and the Pyke River. You will walk along the rugged coastline to Big Bay, cross into the Pyke Valley, and wander past waterfalls on the famous Hollyford track.
While the expedition is a tremendously rewarding adventure, it is not for the meek. Fiordland weather is unpredictable, and the days are relatively rigorous, because the setting is very nearly at the end of the world. But for those up for the challenge, it offers unparalleled opportunities to escape the day to and immerse yourself in the wilderness.
