    Wonderful jet boat ride into Aspiring National Park; beautiful mountain scenery, river thrills and interesting hike. Guides know their stuff and provide entertaining lecture along the way. Hike only moderately strenuous with rewarding views. We even rescued an abandoned calf on the way back.

    I honestly don't remember exactly what time we arrived back in town. Give them a call. They graciously answered any questions that we had beforehand.
