Kiwi packrafter looking for adventure buddies - WORLDWIDE!!

I’m a mad-keen packrafter from New Zealand, on the hunt for adventure buddies in 2015 and 2016. I have endless ideas for trips, but a lack of friends with flexible work schedules… I’m particularly interested in some longer, remote, rugged trips. Also in roadtrips, just exploring all sorts of differe...

Pelorus River (a beautiful 2-3 day trip from Nelson)

The Pelorus River is a great packrafting trip, easily accessible from Nelson. I highly recommend it. You have two main options - can either park your car at Pelorus and then walk up the track that goes next to the river (starts with a dirt road and then goes into DOC marked track). This option means...

Clarence River

Hi everyone I started packrafting the Clarence River (South Island) in early October, we were aiming to do a full source to sea trip. Ended up bailing due to cold - lots of snow and frankly it was quite miserable! Will make sure to bring dry suits or at least proper dry tops next time if it's that e...

Re: Clarence journey - from the source - early October 2014

Hi folks, Sorry I didn't reply to anything - just realised that I didn't check the box to have replies sent to my email inbox! We ended up bailing on the Clarence early, lots of snow and no dry suit was a stupid idea!!! I'm very keen to head back and do this trip sometime next year. If people are pl...

Bali, Indonesia.

Hi there Has anyone taken their packraft to Bali (I have checked out one post about the Ayung River, but the link to the blog is broken)? I've just confirmed a trip there in early 2015 and have two weeks up my sleeve. I've been looking at options of climbing the main volcanoes and then making my way...

Packrafter in South Westland

Hi everyone, I've just moved to Harihari, a small town 70km South of Hokitika. There's a great packrafting river (Wanganui) just up the road (5kms) which is an awesome day trip (or longer if you're experienced) and even boasts natural hot pools. I've got a spare room if any packrafters are passing t...
