For fun, laughter and thrills, go on a rafting adventure with Rangitata Rafts (15 mins drive). A rafting trip like no other, Rangitata Rafts is one of a kind.
With Grade 1 to 5 white water guaranteed on every trip, all you have to decide is whether you're up for the big ones or would rather admire them from a distance.
Rangitata Rafts is a family business and their number one priority is making sure you have a great day. There's no rush, no crowds, just great people and awesome rapids on one of New Zealand's most beautiful rivers.
Grade 1 to 5… it’s your call
With Grade 1 to 5 white water guaranteed on every trip, all you have to decide is whether you're up for the big ones or would rather admire them from a distance (their photographer can walk you around the largest rapids if you think they're a bit much!).
When rugged Lord Of The Rings scenery meets white water exhilaration, it’s a pretty massive rush. Add to this the fact that you're smack in the middle of an historic high-country sheep station and you’ve got the perfect recipe for a great Kiwi adventure.
Time to relax
Their trips are exciting, fun and relaxed. You're out on the river for nearly three hours which is more than enough time to learn some boat skills, get your share of some of NZ's best rapids and make a raft-full of new friends!
Their guides are internationally experienced, quick with a joke and will teach you everything you need to know to tackle the river. From paddle technique, to safety maneuvers you'll be ready for anything the river throws at you.
