Welcome to Alpine KAYAK Guides

Alpine Kayak Guides offer exclusive access to some of New Zealand’s best kept secrets. We have a superb range of rivers available, the mighty Clutha (New Zealand's largest volume river), the Hawea (medium volume), to the remote and spectacular glacial fed Makarora and Matukituki rivers both in Mt Aspiring National Park.

From an invigorating scenic float to an action packed day of kayaking, Alpine Kayak Guides has got what you want! Our trips are tailored to suit your needs and all adventures include; small personal groups, comprehensive instruction, kayaks to suit, brand new equipment, awe-inspiring scenery, crystal-clear water, interesting facts about local History, Flora and Fauna plus surprises along the way.

Our ‘freedom’ sit-on kayaks provide a stable platform so you can safely try as much (or as little) as you want. Surf waves, charge in and out of eddies and run exciting rapids all amongst some of the world’s most stunning scenery and crystal-clear waters.

Alpine Kayak Guides ensure a safe, yet exciting kayaking adventure that is altogether unforgettable.
