What you can expect

Combine spectacular scenery and great rapids for an awesome white water rafting adventure on the renowned Rangitaiki River. Spend an exciting ride manoeuvring past steep gorges, huge boulders and exhilarating rapids.

Upon arrival, go through preparatory training led by experienced professionals before putting on your rafting equipment, including a wetsuit, helmet and life jacket.

Then paddle through the rapids, cutting through a scenic river valley with picturesque views of lush forest landscapes and waterfalls such as the Aniwhenua Falls.

Halfway, catch your breath on some flat water with time to relax, enjoy the scenery and get to know your fellow rafters.

Continue your adventure with a thrilling trip downstream as you raft through a series of rocky rapids at top speeds for a truly adrenaline-pumping experience.

After a day of adventure, enjoy a delicious and satisfying lunch before returning to your Rotorua hotel.
