Kawarau River Rafting

A river adventure for all. This rafting experience offers an insight into rafting surrounded by the beauty of New Zealand wilderness. We pair paddling the rapids with the right amount of excitement to get your heart pumping.

Don’t be fooled by the relaxed nature of this trip, we aim to make each paddle as thrilling as the next. The grade 2-3 rapids may be perfect for first timers but as river levels change on the daily you should expect a gripping ride no matter what. There is plenty of rapid action, even the chance to swim through one and a brand new cliff jumping section. This river experience is the perfect adventure.

Our guides will expertly get you from top to bottom, tackling the unforgettable 400m Dog Leg rapid – New Zealand’s longest commercially rafted rapid, before returning to base for a hot shower.

  • The Lord Of The Rings filming location
  • Raft under the famous AJ Hackett Bungy Bridge
  • Option to arrive by Jet Boat in our Jet to Raft
