Pack Rafting Lake Wanaka & Okuru


Letters from the Mountains...

Hi Daniel & the crew at the shop,

Just letting you know how stoked we are with our R2.

We pack rafted the length of Lake Wanaka, hiked the Makarora and Blue valleys, over Maori Saddle, down the Okuru to the Ngatau junction where we could paddle again.

The Class 3 rapids in the Okuru were quite full on for a couple of intermediate paddlers but the “little boat that could” smashed it!

Epic trip.

Cheers, Don Reid.
