Back Country Bliss Adventures – River Drift Experience

$145 adult

Step into the cool, crystal clear water and drift with the current as you explore life under the water’s surface within the rainforest.


Tour Details

Escape into the rainforest on a River Drift adventure, a perfect retreat from the heat, located just 20 minutes north of Port Douglas.

This unique tour offers a blend of hiking and serene river floating in the lush rainforest of the Mossman River.

Begin with a rewarding walk upstream on a granite sand riverbed, towing your lightweight river sled behind amidst the rainforest canopy.

Uncover the fascinating history and significance of the Mossman River, learning about its vital role in the ecosystem, take refreshing swims in clear waters, and immerse yourself in the stunning surroundings.

The journey takes an exciting turn as you board your river sled, setting off on a floating adventure downstream.

Gliding through a secret creek, you’ll merge onto the main Mossman River. Here, surrounded by rainforest and the gentle sounds of flowing water, the river carries you through its winding path.

This tour is an ideal mix of active exploration and relaxed floating, making it the perfect way to cool off and connect with nature, just a stone’s throw from Port Douglas.
