Looking for some fun, thrills and excitement?
The 4wd Jetboat Adventure is the half-day version of the Alpine Safari Tour and includes a scenic tour over the Canterbury Plains, jetboating, 4-wheel-driving and lunch but does not include the drive to Arthurs Pass or the TranzAlpine train like the Alpine Safari Tour. This is the perfect option if you have already done the full day TranzAlpine experience or you are short on time but still want to experience the Canterbury high country.
Your day begins with a scenic tour over the Canterbury Plains to the Waimak Gorge where you will board the famous Hamilton jetboat for an exciting 45 minute jetboat ride on one of New Zealands most spectacular rivers.
On return from the jetboat we board an off-road vehicle for a scenic 4-wheel-drive adventure across Mt Torlesse Station. This station is a 10,000 acre working sheep and cattle farm situated in the spectacular foot hills of the Southern Alps. You will get to experience the thrill and excitement of off-roading while taking in the spectacular alpine scenery and learning about the farm.
After an exciting morning we will stop at quaint country café for a delicious lunch, after lunch you will be returned to Christchurch.
Tour price includes accommodation pick up, drop off* and a delicious café lunch.
