Ultimate Descents - Family Rafting - Grade 2

Add to List

If you're looking for an adventurous but safe activity the whole family can enjoy, then Buller Gorge Family Rafting is for you.

Set within beautiful mountain scenery and lush forest, this stretch of the Buller River is simply stunning and its Grade 2 waters offer exciting but not frightening white water action.

There will be the opportunity for everyone in your family to paddle, made easier with custom made paddles for children.

Experience the thrill of riding the rapids and floating over pools so clear you can see right to the bottom.

The kids will just love jumping of the rocks and having a swim in the crystal clear waters of the calmer parts of the river and enjoy riding the wave trains, a long series of waves providing endless fun.

Your entertaining guides will cater to all your family needs and provide all equipment and clothing. Hot showers and refreshments and snacks are also available after your epic adventure.

So do something extra special with the kids and take them on a thrilling rafting expedition they will never forget.

    Fantastic white water experience

    We had booked the Level 2 family rafting trip, but no others had signed up, so we were talked into going with the Level 3-4 White water trip. We are thrilled that we did!!! The Buller Gorge is beautiful and the guides were expert -- both at steering the raft and keeping all of us calm and safe. We loved it.

    The Ultimate Getaway

    Our booking was made by accident,and it turned out to be the best decision about our trip. The staff are all accommodating, guides are great and explains the parts of the river (pockets, eddie, boil and such). My partner and I definitely had a blast! Will definitely reccomend with our friends. PS: It's so far the highlight of my Birthday Getaway.😉
