Tongariro River Rafting

The magical waters of the Tongariro River provide one of nature's finest, fun-filled roller coaster rides. Navigate over 60 rapids with an expert guide at the helm. Safety and 'oarsome' fun are our priority. Plus, keep an eye out for the native whio.

This half-day Tongariro River journey is one of the best rafting adventures in NZ. The rapids are Grade 3, which makes this an ideal adventure for expert or first-time rafters alike. In two hours you navigate over 60 roller coaster rapids with an expert guide at the helm. A large part the top section of this trip can only be accessed by raft or kayak so you’ll see plenty of spectacular unspoilt wilderness and may catch a glimpse of the protected "whio" or native blue duck. Our guides are qualified rafting professionals and our gear is top quality.
We are the founders of the Blue Duck Project—the conservation initiative with the goal of returning the rare native Blue Duck (or Whio) to its traditional habitat along the Tongariro River.
