Judged TOP CHOICE Lonely Planet, 2012
Join us on a wild ride down the legendary Buller River Earthquake Rapids, the section with the most whitewater in the breath taking Buller Gorge.
Adventurers will experience plenty of white water action. Challenge yourself at the "swim" rapid and the optional 8 metre cliff jump.
First Rafting Trip? - No worries!! Your guides will give you full rafting safety instruction. Marty and Bruce are committed to making your river trip not only safe, but the best you'll experience.
Because the Buller River is a large volume wild river with no dams to regulate the flow, the rapid Grade 3 to 4 varies with rainfall. Ask us about the river flow when you book.

Our rafting operation is audited and certified by Maritime New Zealand, and we are members of the New Zealand Rafting Association.
Wild Rivers Rafting reserves the right to cancel or postpone any trip for any reason (i. e adverse weather/river conditions). We provide all river equipment/safety gear. After the trip, relax and enjoy a snack served with locally roasted Certified Organic Fairtrade coffee, tea or hot chocolate.
