Kayaking - Funyaks


Latest Questions about Kayaking - Funyaks

This trip looks amazing, do we need any kayaking experience to be able to do this trip? We are in our 50's and really keen to see some of the scenery and Lord of the Rings locations in Glenorchy, this looks like a great way to see it with the jetboat ride as well. Is the jetboat ride very fast or scarey?


Hi Peter. No kayaking experience required on the Funyaks trip mate and you're right, it's a great trip if you want to see some spectacular Lord of the Rings locations and scenery. The jetboat ride is pretty fast and they do a few quick turns but it's more of a scenic jet boat ride through the wide dart river and Mt Aspiring National park compared to the thrilling jet boat ride experienced on the Shotover Jet through the narrow Shotover Canyons.

Hi, How fit do you have to be is there a lot of walking involved as my Mum cant walk to far and not up hills.

Hi Linda. There is not a lot of walking at all on the Funyaks trip. The short amount of walking is very flat with no hills at all. It is suitable for all levels of fitness.
