Packrafting First Descent in the Heart of New Zealand’s Wild Southern

Barny Young and fellow packrafters started hiking near the small town of Whataroa, New Zealand and headed roughly 35km into the hills. They journeyed on to an Ice lake at the base of a glacier, the source of the Butler River. This is where the whitewater starts raging. Follow their journey as they navigate crystal blue water and incredible mountain landscapes.

The film was made in partnership with Barny Young, Social Focus, and Gradient, and Water.
