Adrenalin Fix

Rakaia River. 2008. Ajr
Nothing gets my adrenalin pumping faster than a helicopter! And this little jaunt with Mt Hutt Helicopters was no exception. Even better that the whole business started with a racy trip up the Rakaia River with the Terrace Downs Discovery Jet. If you’ve got eagle-eye vision, you might just spot the jet far below in the river. The dramatic landscapes around this area – around 45 minutes from Christchurch – are well worth exploring; and if you’re a skier, you can be whisked from Terrace Downs High Country Resort to the Mt Hutt Ski Area in a matter of minutes.
