Our family of 5, with sons 22, 20 & 14 enjoyed this ride immensely. The scenery was spectacular, and we felt a great sense of achievement afterwards. Don't be fooled by the 'easy ride' comments though. There is a lot of work in this ride,...More

Great driver, so much local knowledge. It made the trip so much more than a ride. Dave could not have been more accommodating, informative or professional. Grimmaced at first at the price but finished the day totally satisfied and don't begrudge a cent.

Why is this NZ’s best kept secret? Who is encouraging the use of this trail? Why does patronage appear so low? This trail is stunning, well planned through the beautiful Clutha River Gorge. Beaumont Jets, operated by the extremely skilled, knowledgeable Dave Crawford, gave us...More

Stunning trail. Excellent views on a relatively easy cycle trail suitable as a family ride. Recommend taking the jet boat as this just adds to the trip.

Shebikeshebikes have done it again. Fabulous bike ride. Jet boat trip was very informative and enjoyable. Accommodation at Lake Roxburgh Lodge organised by shebikeshebikes was perfect. Thoroughly recommend it.

Rode this trail with our group of older recreational cyclists. Challenging in parts, but well worth the effort, with the bonus of a great jetboat ride in the middle section. Well supported by local services.

The Roxburgh Gorge Trail only takes a day but is also a great trip combined with the Clutha Gold Trail. We travelled from Roxburgh Village and were pleased that the (only) steep hill is at the start of the trail while we were still fresh...More

A great days ride. The scenery was stunning and the trail was well made. Great to have the Jet Boat ride in the middle of the ride. "Bike it Now" planned our trip and supplied the most comfortable bikes we had ridden for years.

Hello, I have not done the jetboat ride myself, but this is a still hydro lake, NO rapids. Would only be rough if the driver made it so or because of weather. Thanks, Xavier xx

Our experience was also calm with great commentary. It is not a thrill seeking ride. The boat driver also helps getting your bike off and on and securing it to the boat. I think you should be fine, but if in doubt it would... More
