Our day commences with a coach ride across the Canterbury Plains to the Waimakariri Gorge. Spray jackets, hats and life jackets are issued to each passenger before boarding the famous Hamilton jet-boat for a ride up one of New Zealand's major snow-fed rivers. Weave in and out of rock faces, white water rapids and high walled rock canyons.

From the river we board our four wheel drive vehicle and journey across Torlesse Station. We reach a point of over 3000 feet for views over the Canterbury Plains. A delicious BBQ lunch awaits you in a quaint cafe before we continue our journey to Arthur's Pass.
