About Expedition X - Packrafting New Zealand - Queenstown
Changing the way you see the map.... Whether you want to challenge your boundaries or are solely looking for a relaxing and unique way to see areas of our great wilderness that lay off the beaten track, we can cater for you. Our fun packed packrafting trips are created as an overall outdoors experience. Hike, climb, swim, play, raft or simply float and take in the breathtaking scenery, armed with your own paddle, a packraft and walking boots the opportunities are endless. With these lightweight boats you'll be able to access some of the most remote and undisturbed rivers in the Southern Hemisphere, these hidden gems would usually be unreachable with conventional boats and kayaks alone.

Magical day out up the Rees valley. Huw is an amazing guide in all respects. Gear was in excellent condition. If you're looking for a great company to do a trip with, choose one of their trips.
