I did the 6 day Hollyford / Pyke loop pack rafting trip with my Sister and her Husband. This loop is ideal for pack rafting with a very good mix of rafting and hiking. The scenery was absolutely astounding, from glacier clad mountains to pristine rivers and lakes. It requires a good level of fitness, but I found the challenge just made it that much more rewarding.
I find it all too easy to get caught up in day to day life and this trip turned out to be much more than just a get-away. Without a phone or a watch and carrying everything we needed to live in our rafts / on our backs, I felt completely liberated for 6 days. I was able to truly live in the moment, a freeness that is all too rare in our fast paced world. Lying back in a pack raft, drifting across a lake, one hand skimming the water, while watching the night sky perform its cosmic dance above us was unforgettable. And that was just one of the many amazing experiences I had on this trip.
Our guides, Arno and Andy, were a great team and made the trip safe and enjoyable. These guys know the outdoors and their love of it made everything that much more exciting. They are both great teachers, so I finished the trip with not just many great experiences, but also a number of new skills and an expanded understanding of my own capabilities.
