Never hear of this before, but was great

I had never heard of sledging before. But when I looked up rafting, sledging came up as well. We opted to go sledging instead of rafting, as we have rafted before. It was a lot of fun, but also a lot of work. We The guides were great, and kept everyone safe.

Sledging FUN

Our guides Ben and Caruso, the smaller group size, awesome water temperature made for a fantastic white water experience! An added bonus; awesome photographer Amy, dinner recommendations from the crew, jokes on the water, karakia honouring and respecting the space. Thanks 😊
