Funyak & Dart River Safari

27 Jan 2016 (Wed) - 31 Dec 2016 (Sat)


Enjoy this great adventure. Alessandra from Hurleys recently went on this amazing trip.
Funyak Safari was a great experience. It was a beautiful hot day, so the normally very cold river was very refreshing! The scenery was spectacular and I enjoyed both parts - the jetboat ride & the funyaking. We spent a good time in the kayak, time enough for you to get the hold of what you have to do and then enjoy the rest of the trip.
The crew were excellent guides, very knowledgeable and made the day even more enjoyable. Giving us tips of what to do with the kayak and always keeping an eye on everyone in the group, always with a good motivating word for everyone. The lunch was nice, in a lovely spot. I would definitely recommend insect repellant though!

Doubtful Sound

27 Jan 2016 (Wed) - 31 Dec 2016 (Sat)

From Queenstown with Real Journeys

An amazing journey to the fiords and beyond. Book direct with reception staff and enjoy.
The trip was an amazing experience from beginning to end. The scenery we pass through and the Manapouri lake were amazing. And then we arrived at Doubtful Sound to face the stunning views of the fiords. Its breathtaking and I just couldn´t get enough. Almost at the end of the trip we stopped in a perfect spot and the skipper asked us to be quiet, turn mobiles and cameras off and he killed the engines. It´s amazing the sounds you can´t hear when the boat is running. Everything from birds, seals and the Tasman sea can be heard. It´s so peaceful and beautiful that touches your soul. Once you go to the Fiords you´ll never be the same.
During our way back to the harbor they showed us a video of the underwater activity in Doubtful sound. You´ll be amazed with all that goes on under those calm waters.
A delightful trip for any kind of travelers, solo, family or group of friends.
One of our MUST DO trips!
