Latest adventure

Every month new adventures

Every month we are going out on some packrafting adventures somewhere in New Zealand. The Hollyford/Pyke and the Wairaurahiri are so polular that we are doing them on a regular basis.

Meet our outstanding leaders

Arno was the first to open a commercial packrafting operation on planet earth in 2011. Guiding and teaching ever since. In 2016 Andy joined the team and is now an integral part of the crazy German/American operation called Packrafting New Zealand.
