Hop on to a stand up paddle board (SUP) and get swept away in the fun and challenge of cruising down the Clutha River.
An interactive gentle adventure for those with little or no SUP experience. You’ll soon feel like you are flying as you float atop the crystal clear water. You'll start with a flat water session before heading into the river with a couple of small rapids along the way add to the excitement in a truly exclusive Wanaka adventure.
A unique introductory guided tour of the Clutha River. All equipment provided.Description
SUP the River Taster starts with you meeting one of your guides, either at the Wanaka I-site or right at your accommodation door. From there, it’s a quick drive down to the river, which is the start point for your epic adventure!
As soon as you arrive, you’ll get your safety gear on, get a SUP skills briefing and lesson, and get on the water! You and your guide will build your skills on the flat calm water where the lake flows into the river, until you are feeling confident enough to push on to the next level. Your guide is there to help, so they will give you lots of information about how to travel down the river safely and effectively.
After a little while of smooth, fast-flowing river, your first rapid will appear around the corner. Either drop to your knees for more stability to ride it out, or challenge yourself to stand up and bounce through the waves!
Of course, a trip with Paddle Wanaka wouldn’t be complete without a stop to refuel with some beverages and our famous brownie!
At the end of your trip, you’ll be picked up again and taken back to your starting point in town.Highlights
