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.

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.

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 rafting

We have been travelling the country with our caravan biking and hiking for around 12mths. Having thought about stopping in Murchison we surfed the net for something exciting and before we new it had booked a rafting trip with Ultimate descents. The day dawned looking really good and off we went to be greeted by the very friendly staff who kittted us out and made us feel very comfortable. Then it was off down the river with guide Johnny for an amazing 2hrs on the mighty Buller river. Awesome scenery great company and some adrenalin pumping fun. Extremely good value for money.

Excellent experience

A really enjoyable rafting trip. Fantastic scenery, some exciting rapids, an opportunity to float down the river and a rock jump. Wonderful guides made the couple of hours on the river and awesome time.

The best journey I could expect!

Manu, Shawn and Daniel are the best guides we could have had for this incredible journey on the Buller river. Funny, thoughful and they give us many explanations about the scenery and the nature we passed through. The rest of the team was also very nice, smiling and making you at ease. We were offered great scones and hot drinks after the trip, which was much appreciated, and they also send pictures of the trip thanks to the photographer who followed us all along the journey. Thanks again for everything! I would do it again a million times with such a great team.
