Teams then trek, packraft, canoe, cave, kayak, bike and orienteer their way home. The route takes in the the Poulter, Waimakariri and Rakaia Rivers along the way. Teams will also visit Castle Hill, Alford Range, Lake Clearwater, Big Hill Range and Palmer Range, before finally heading over the Port Hills for an Akaroa Harbour paddle to the finish.
