With two Inflatable stand up paddle boards rolled up in our back packs, Scott Palmer and myself set out on a bit of and adventure.
We drove up the Matukituki valley, to Cameron flat, parked the car and crossed the river.
We walked in for about 3 hours, until the valley forked into two joining rivers.
Thats where we dropped in, Im unsure of the name of the area, but I have marked the start/end and turn around points on a map at the end of the video.
The paddle out took us about 1:30 to 2 hours.
It ended up being a much deeper river than anticipated, which made it easily doable.
A few good rapids in one of the most beautiful places Ive ever been made for an amazing trip.
The added rain and cloud in the hills made it even more epic.
Id love to do more like it!
