What To Expect

Enjoy a three hour action filled experience with two thrilling activities combined into one day! Start your adventures with a morning or afternoon hotel pick up. You will be taken to the activity site and begin your Nomad Safaris 4WD off road tour. You will explore the abandoned gold mining area of Arrow River and even do some gold panning yourself! You will also witness some filming locations used in the hugely successful trilogy, The Lord of the Rings. After your rugged road four wheel drive, you will embark on an exhilarating jet boat journey through the narrow canyons of Shotover River. Remember to hold on tight for a full 360 degree spin! With either a morning or afternoon tea included, you will have enough energy to complete both adventures. At the end of your experiences, you will be whisked back to your hotel.

    Jet board is very stimulating and driving is very interesting Four-wheel drive will go to the general tourists less to go but the scenery is also a lot of places to pay attention to the autumn insects

    Originally just holding the idea of ​​ride ride, I did not expect the experience of four-wheel drive let me admiration, really is climbing + wading, drove the car to the top of the mountain, into the valley, allowing you to experience the formation of the ice age terrain! ! And then take you to dig gold town, driving a four-wheel drive across the valley, wading and finally let you experience the fun of dig gold! ! ! Jet boats do not need to describe it! Look at the story, is to enjoy the thrill of speed! Let you experience the excitement of other countries can not stimulate the excitement! ! !
