Whitewater rafting at its most breathtaking! More than your average trip. Few other rivers can offer you the stunning scenery paired with the thrill and excitement of some of the most challenging rapids. An awesome full day experience.

Optional transport from Christchurch (or self drive) and two meals to keep your energy levels buzzing! One scheduled trip per day ensures we maintain the friendly, relaxed atmosphere our clients rave about. With 2.5 hours on the river, there is time to practice maneuvers and get ready for the action and fun ahead, including grade 5 rapids. An opportunity to swim in the beautiful calm sections or an optional leap off a Jump Rock – all under the direction of our world class Guides, no previous experience required. Check out our video on YouTube. Backpacker accommodation available at our beautifully situated lodge.
Or enjoy a fun rafting experience on the beautiful Lower River section. This trip can be as gentle or as crazy-fun as you like, just let your guide know which you prefer. Fantastic Grade 2 fun for the whole family.

Greatly organised, what an enthusiastic crew! There was plenty of time for preparations. The guides were very professional and cool. The equipment was good and the BBQ after was a great way to end the day.

The rafting was grade 2-3-5. You learn what you need to do, so no worries. It was cool but we expected a bit more.

It was a REAL adventure, especially if you fall into the water at grade 5 - the highest grade you are able to raft; the jump from the 8m high cliffs was also great and teh beautiful landscape.
