My brother, husband, and I did a 6 day trip with Andy and Arno and we all agreed it was the best part of our trip! The 6 day trip takes you out on the Hollyford/Pyke Loop where you will see some absolutely stunning scenery completely secluded from the rest of civilization. While the trip was certainly hard work (not for the faint of heart!) it was worth every second.

Arno and Andy made for a fantastic duo keeping us thoroughly entertained. So many great stories over delicious backpacker meals. They were both incredibly knowledgable and clearly passionate about what they do. I'd recommend pack rafting to anyone ready for a little challenge and a desire to see New Zealand in the purest form. I'd do this trip again in a heartbeat!
