An exhilarating rafting trip providing the perfect introduction for first time rafters with plenty of white water action over four rapids on the Kawarau River. Between rapids there are fantastic scenic stretches of river allowing time to relax and take in the stunning surrounds, including a unique perspective of the worlds first commercial bungy site as we travel below the Kawarau Bungy Bridge.
The stunning natural beauty of the Kawarau River saw it star as the River Anduin in The Lord of The Rings movie epic, and is sure to impress. The magnificence of the canyons will give Lord of the Rings fans the sensation they are paddling through the heart of Middle Earth.
This fantastic journey through the beauty of New Zealand's highest volume commercially rafted river is topped of with the excitement of NZ's longest commercially run rapid. The 400m long Dog Leg rapid provides an exhilarating and unforgettable finish to your adventure.
After your rafting trip there is time to relax enjoy a hot shower before returning to Queenstown.

Hi Susan, Thanks for taking the time to review us. We have all fitness and ages come out on our trips. The Kawarau River is one for everyone!
Wow! Glad we helped with the bucket list! Keep going :-)
Thanks for your review. Our Kawarau River trip is ideal for first time rafters or suited to those looking for a more relaxed rafting experience as stated in all our marketing material. It is grade 2-3, so in that respect your review is 5 star, as no not that much action and we have great guides. Perfect! Maybe our Shotover River trip grade 4-5 would have suited you better?
Thanks for your kind words guys! Glad you had an amazing time!
