Raft the Kaituna River with its awesome 7 metre drop - the biggest commercially rafted waterfall in the world!
Raft the Kaituna River with its awesome 7 metre drop - the biggest commercially rafted waterfall in the world! Just 20 minutes from Rotorua, The Kaituna River is certain to satisfy the thirst of adventure for both rafting enthusiasts and first timers. Amidst the peaceful bush clad valley, the Kaituna River drops away providing 14 awesome Grade 4 and 5 Pool & Drop-pool rapids, including 3 waterfalls - one being the world-renowned 7 metre Tutea Falls! (Rapids are graded from 1-5, with 1 being easiest and grade 5 being the highest grade permitted for commercial rafting groups). The Kaituna snakes through steep canyons, providing 1.8 kilometres of white water action. With the best gear and guides coupled with a unique mix of history, culture and adrenalin overload, this is an unforgettable 1 hour excursion down the Kaituna River. Rafting on the Kaituna is an unusual mixture of adrenalin overload and cultural respect! This is a 3 hour round trip from pick up to drop off.
What about transport? Courtesy pick-up and drop-off from Rotorua accommodation available.
Everything was easy and smooth.
Absolutely fantastic experience I would recommend to all my friends. Wonderful experienced guides, I especially liked the female guide that was completing training in the raft! What great fun! Super scary waterfall. I'd love to do it again some day. No where near as cold as I thought it would be either. Even in the middle of winter!
Totally had a great day
The staff were so helpful, had a great sense of humour and made the rafting experience so much fun.
