Jetboating on part of the Upper Waiau River, between Lake Te Anau and Lake Manapouri. This section of the river is where the “River Anduin” scenes were filmed for the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
We travelled down to the beautiful Lake Manapouri – a glorious (very cold) day on the water.
Luxmore Jet really looked after us on a wintry NZ day.
