Mount Aspiring National Park Travel Guide

Sports and the Outdoors

Siberia Experience. Siberia Experience has one of the area's best adventure packages. The journey begins with a funky little yellow plane in a paddock-cum-airstrip. After a breathtaking 25-minute journey from Makarora, the pilot drops you off in the pristine wilderness of Mt. Aspiring National Park's Siberia Valley, and points you to a trailhead. From there, embark on a magnificent three-hour hike on a well-marked, relatively easy trail. Finally, a jet-boat meets you at the Wilkin River and returns you to Makarora. There is a hut out there if you'd like to arrange overnight stays. 48 Helwick St., Wanaka. 0800/345–666 or 03/443–4385. NZ$310.
