Stage 1

Waiau Borland

Teams begin their GODZone in Te Anau and make their way to Lake Te Anau. Here they raft and canoe across the lake and access the Upper Waiau River. Fast paddling down this Grade II river to Supply Bay where they make the change to Lake Manapouri after a short portage. A couple of tricky CP's around The Monument make split some of the field before teams head towards the Snow White Clearings and the Borland. A large abseil of about 140m awaits the teams. More rafting and canoeing on the Monowai and Lower Waiau Rivers complete this long, mixed stage.
