This was an awesome, unreal, and amazing experience. We hiked for about 3 hours through the river valley, in some of the most isolated, yet beautiful places on earth. Then we had lunch at the base of a huge mountain, with waterfalls and glaciers viewable...More

A terrific multi-day trip pack rafting through the Hollyford/Pyke loop. Awesome environment to explore with great gear and with the best guides you could imagine. Jump on board if you can.
