Your flight ends with landing amongst the mountains in the remote Siberia Valley where your 2.5-3hr walk begins. The freedom walk is 6.8km with a combination of flat, up-hill & down-hill sections. The track/trail is clearly defined and easy to follow as you set off across the flats and Siberia Stream and on to the track proper which leads you to the jetboat pick up point in the Wilkin Valley. Rendezvouz at the rivers edge at a pre-arranged time with Wilkin River Jets for a 30 minute scenic and thrilling ride back to where your Siberia Experience began. Suitable for all ages with an average/reasonably good fitness level.
