These half day experiences are for those looking to add a little more adventure to their time in Fiordland.

Enjoy the thrill of jet boating down the majestic Waiau River, otherwise known as the Anduin River, the great river of Middle Earth featured in The Lord of the Rings. The journey will lead out to the breathtaking Lake Manapouri, before stepping foot into an ancient beach forest to learn all about the unique flora and fauna of the area, as well as indigenous Māori culture and the early pioneers of European history in New Zealand.

Then, visitors will have the choice between a sea plane, or biking adventure.

'Float n' Boat' 

Step straight from the boat onto Te Anau's only sea plane to enjoy a 15-minute scenic flight high above Fiordland National Park with spectacular views before landing back on Lake Te Anau.  

‘Bike n’ Boat’ 

Step from the boat onto a mountain bike to follow the newly formed Lake2Lake cycle trail. The trail follows the river's edge and is an ideal way to experience both Lake Te Anau and Lake Manapouri. The trail is Grade 1-2 (Easy) and great for all skill levels. There are some hills along the way, so there is the option to upgrade to an electric bike for those wanting a little assistance.
