If you’re up for a wet and wild New Zealand adventure, this full day of white water rafting down the grade 5 rapids on Wairoa and Kaituna River is an absolute must-do. You’ll jump into the raft with expert guides and tackle some of the most exciting white water action in New Zealand.
You can either be picked up from Rotorua on the North Island or meet at Wairoa River for your white water rafting expedition, where you’ll be briefed and set up to get on the water. Once aboard the raft, you’ll take on the whole of the river.
Get ready for the adrenaline rush as you approach ‘Mother’s Nightmare’, a technical grade 4 rock garden that’s followed by a sudden two-metre drop. Then ‘The Rollercoaster’ will get your blood pumping as you experience ‘Devil’s Cauldron’ and the breath-taking ‘Bottom Drop’. Prepare for an exhilarating three-metre drop as you rush down ‘The Waterfall’ and into a churning pool of white water.
You’ll be treated to a light lunch and refreshments by the river before moving on to the world-famous Kaituna River. Jump back into a raft and prepare to take on 14 epic rapids and the world’s highest rafted waterfall. Dropping down the 7 metre Tutea Falls is an extreme thrill you need to tick off your bucket list and the perfect way to top off an exciting day of white water rafting.
Please note: Due to Wairoa being dam release, this tour only runs on select days throughout the year as indicated on the booking calendar.
