Packrafting: changing backcountry travel Marie Henderson

04 June  Packrafting: changing backcountry travel Marie Henderson

Marie has done a packrafting trip on the Clarence River and the Hollyford-Pyke loop. She describes packrafts as 'little blow up boats that are, like, halfway between a tyre tube and a hardshell kayak', and says 'people do the paddle bit in their packrafts and then look like trampers when they are in carry mode'.
