The famous Snowy River passes through some of the most breathtaking and remote wilderness in Australia. Your 5-day immersive journey with Alpine River Adventures starts with learning the skills you'll need to negotiate the whitewater in the days ahead. After that, you'll spend your mornings paddling the rapids and your afternoons exploring or relaxing. Go swimming, bushwalk the ridges or sprawl on your own private beach with a good book. Nights are spent under the stars at remote campsites with food and conversation around the campfire.
Your Aboriginal guide will provide cultural interpretation and local knowledge of the area. Much of the area is untouched by European occupation so there are many Aboriginal sites.
The river corridor supports a diverse mix of wildlife. Don't be surprised to see platypuses, kangaroos, emus and sea eagles as you paddle. With an undeniable spiritual quality, this stunning area is sure to captivate and inspire.
Alpine River Adventures is a licensed commercial tour operator with a Parks Eco Pass.
