Ultimate Descents - Buller Gorge Rafting - Grade 3-4

Embark on a thrilling rafting expedition in New Zealand's white water capital Murchison with the rugged West Coast scenery as a stunning backdrop for the ultimate adventure experience.

- bookme ALERT : WATCH THE VIDEO!.

The beautiful Buller River runs West and gains its mighty power from the Matiri, Mangles and Matakitaki Rivers journeying through vast canyons before taking on the epic Upper Buller Gorge.

This fast and furious rafting trip will allow you to experience the thrill of Grade 3-4 white water and surging rapids whilst you navigate through the deep gorges and pink granite canyons.

You'll get the chance to catch your breath and relax in the pools surrounded by lush forest, but not for too long as the next set of rapids await you!

You'll be far too pumped up to take photos as you hang on for dear life, so the team will do it for you and you have the opportunity to go home with these awesome memories on disk.

No experience is required, so, take the trip of a lifetime and experience the ultimate in white water adventure!

An exciting experience

Great communication to begin with, gave me a call in the morning to confirm weather and river conditions. Then when we arrived at the office the bloke at the desk was very helpful and informative about all of Murchison (food, accomodation and activities). Then met the whole team, all great guys, got suited up and then got out on the river. Amazing day rafting, awesome scenery and exciting rapids. Then scones and a warm drink to unwind at the base. Would definitely recommend if you're heading that way.

Awesome experience. Jackie was an excellent tour guide. Lots of fun. Great that we got given the photos as part of the deal and the scones and hot drink was a nice touch at the end.

A great company to go with

I’ll admit there were some slow and boring parts but the guide was great, he didn’t flip us (hahaha my last raft flipped), I extremely appreciated the photos and not trying to charge extra to get them like a lot of other companies do, and that when we couldn’t go over the falls, we could still jump into the rapids, which was terrifying but great.

Fantastic rafting experience

The team at ultimate descents were extremely friendly and accommodating. We were fortunate to have the expertise of two guides - Sonny and Machi. The morning trip was a lot of fun and we felt that the guides really knew how to get the best out of the trip. We highly recommend this trip with this company! Thanks again.
