HUMAN POWERED MULTI-SPORT ADVENTURE
WHAT IS PACKRAFTING?
Packrafting is a relatively new sport in New Zealand. Light enough to be carried long distances, packrafts are the perfect add-on to any adventure. Hike-raft, bike-raft, ski-raft, hunting, car camping, traveling, fishing, canyoning, white water - you name it. Supplies and gear are stored easily in the pontoon chamber of the raft before inflating. Grab a paddle, strap any larger gear on top, and you’re ready to adventure! Need help sorting which packraft is right for you? No worries, contact us here.

My name is Barny Young and I am the founder of Packraft New Zealand. I've been chasing white water adventure for over 15 years and completed expeditions all over the world, mostly in a kayak. After trying packrafting I realised how capable and epic this piece of kit is and how it unlocked my adventure horizon. The lightweight design allows me to walk to the start of almost any desired put-in and offers diversity to adventure whether it be hike then raft, bike then raft, raft & fish, hunt then raft, jet boat then raft and more.
Pack-rafts and accessories can be purchased direct to avoid credit card and additional online fees being charged. If you have any questions or would like to make an enquiry, feel free to fill out the contact form or reach out via the details below.
