Rafting Rotorua

Experience white water rafting with a cultural twist!
Rotorua, a unique part of NZ, with its mud pools and geysers, is home to some of the best rafting in the world.

Mixing adrenalin and culture would seem like an impossible task but our white-water rafting product shows respect to local Maori iwi and gives you an initiation into Aspects Maori. Our guides not only provide a culturally immersed river trip but with the addition of local area knowledge, history and satisfaction for all kinds of white-water enthusiasts. This product provides our clients with a total experience.

With the variety of waterways surrounding Rotorua at our disposal, we will go where the flow is highest.

Just 20 minutes from town in their courtesy vehicle and their guides (winners of NZ raft champs 2003) will raft you down the Kaituna River , snake through bush clad canyons, plunge down the 7m Tutea Falls into the white knuckle foam below, all in one hour of adrenalin packed fun.


The Wairoa is available everyday in summer and winter and is an unsurpassed rafting adventure, beginning with a backdrop of the beautiful Maclarens falls, followed by 1 hour and 45 mins of adrenalin overload. Transport and refreshments provided for this grade 5 world class rafting experience.

Our guides are all NZQA Qualified, our business is a maritime safety approved operation.
