Conquer some of NZ’s most exhilarating rapids
Grade 2 to 5, you choose!
Your chance to navigate 10kms of one of NZ’s most beautiful rivers, our exhilarating grade 5 adventure will get your heart pounding. Starting off on the calmer upper stretches of the Rangitata river, you’ll have plenty of time to perfect your paddling skills and warm up through the grade 2 & 3 rapids before arriving at the grade 5 section of the Rangitata Gorge. At this point you can choose if you want to continue rafting through the thunderous rapids, tight gaps and rocky outcrops of the Gorge itself or would rather walk around and admire them from the side. To cool off after all the action, there’ll be a chance to go for a surf and take a dip in the calmer sections. Scroll down for a full run-down of the day.
