Rangitaiki River White Water Rafting from Rotorua
From $104.56
Experience the elation of Rangitaiki River white-water rafting over Grade 3 and 4 rapids on this 6-hour adventure for physically active participants. You’ll bounce over whirling white water on a thrilling run through the stunning river valley, including a section of flat water where you can relax before lunch and a hot shower. Includes gear, paddling instruction, and hotel pickup and drop-off from Rotorua.
What to Expect
Start your white-water river-rafting adventure with hotel pickup in Rotorua. After transferring to the rafting base and the Rangitaiki River, you’re provided with a life jacket, safety helmet and wetsuit along with booties and weather-dependent polar fleece top and spray jacket.
Before launching into the water, you’ll receive a 20-minute safety training that includes paddling instruction and commands, as good teamwork is required to run the mostly Grade 3 (and one Grade 4) river rapids — suitable for anyone who is physically active.
Paddle past sheer rock walls surrounded by a plantation forest, and be rewarded with a 15-minute section of flat water around the midpoint of your white-water rafting, where you can relax. Take in the epic New Zealand scenery, chat with your river guide and dip in for a swim if you’d like.
Your white-water expedition includes lunch and a hot shower at the base before you’re returned to your Rotorua hotel.
