The plane ride is scenic with a very capable pilot, but the 30 minutes goes fast. The hike was nice, but we had been fortunate to do nicer ones. The jet boat ride is thrilling. This was a splurge for us, and perhaps I was hoping for just a little more. All in all, if $310NZ justifies what I experienced, it' a day well spent. Remember to bring bug dope and lunch, as you'll probably have a 20 - 30 minute wait for the jet boat.

Jetboat, walk to Siberia hut, stay overnight and then heli back in the morning - WOW.
Light aircraft flight to the Siberia Valley then walk down Wilkin river and pick up by jet boat. A great way of experiencing the wilderness.
Dont do the Siberia Exp. and the milford sound flight just days after each other. we were probably too full of impressions from the milford sound flight. the flight is nice and thehike pretty. but we would say do a 1day reuteburn and milford sound instead.
Very beautiful and exciting view over the mountain and fun and exciting ride with the jet boat. Great for our kids at 8 and 14 years.
Great value for money, a real mini adventure.
We had a great time doing this activity. Unfortunately the flight was over before we knew it, mainly because of the beautiful scenery being viewed outside. The Siberia valley we landed in was breathtaking, so pristine we were expecting a dinosaur to come out from the undergrowth any minute. The walk back was spectacular with many things to see. The Wilkin Valley is also beautiful where you meet the jetboat, unfortunately i only had time to grap a few mouthfuls of lunch before being flung around in the jetboat, which was great. TIP have lunch when you get back to base, you will enjoy the trip better. Hopefully for others it will not get much more expensive than the NZD$310 each which we paid, which is a bit pricey for a plane ride and jet boat. Overall the whole experience was brilliant and something i will allways treasure.
