People kayak both the Arahura and Styx Rivers and gain access by walking or flying in by helicopter.
Classic grade 4 and 5 technical, steep, medium volume river running. The Arahura is 14 km of the most dynamically and aesthetically satisfying grade 4+ kayaking available in the world!
The Styx River is steep, technical, varied and similar to the helicopter access trips in the region. Classic ‘read and run’ technical grade 4/4+ whitewater in the first 1.5 km.Classic grade 3 whitewater from there down. Tight lines, fairly steep gradient, short drops which are often close together to form longer sequences.
