Amazing experience

The day was great from pick up to drop off. From never being rafting to rafting in a grade 5 was eye opening and a huge adrenaline rush (especially when we capsized!) but the guys and girls are all amazing and made us feel as safe (as possible) at all times. Special shoutout to Maddy our guide who was great!!!! Also the chef because the food was awesome:)

Fantabulous

This is the place for gade 5 rapids. We had a fantastic time out there with Dino Maddy and crew. Definitely worth the drive to Rangitata.
