Packrafts in New Zealand

Here's a compilation video of some West Coast rivers in packrafts.

Pretty nice to buy a 6-month hut pass for $60, hike up a trail for two hours, sleep in a super nice hut on thick comfy mattress (no need to carry tent or pad), leave your camping gear/food, hike up 3-4 more hours and put in on some steep class IV, paddle down to the first hut, grab your gear and paddle out toe the road.

Way cheaper than a helicopter flight.

The hut system in NZ was one of my favorite parts about the backcountry out there. Great system.
