Ultimate Descents - Buller Gorge Rafting - Grade 3-4

Embark on a thrilling rafting expedition in New Zealand's white water capital Murchison with the rugged West Coast scenery as a stunning backdrop for the ultimate adventure experience.

- bookme ALERT : WATCH THE VIDEO!.

The beautiful Buller River runs West and gains its mighty power from the Matiri, Mangles and Matakitaki Rivers journeying through vast canyons before taking on the epic Upper Buller Gorge.

This fast and furious rafting trip will allow you to experience the thrill of Grade 3-4 white water and surging rapids whilst you navigate through the deep gorges and pink granite canyons.

You'll get the chance to catch your breath and relax in the pools surrounded by lush forest, but not for too long as the next set of rapids await you!

You'll be far too pumped up to take photos as you hang on for dear life, so the team will do it for you and you have the opportunity to go home with these awesome memories on disk.

No experience is required, so, take the trip of a lifetime and experience the ultimate in white water adventure!

Amazing experience

We spent the Christmas day in a different way than usual. We had a very nice experience on the Buller river. Out guide, Sunny, is very experienced and he took care of us and our kids all the time. We had the adventure we were looking for and in the same time we felt safe. Sunny is very funny and we had a nice talk. Thank you very much Sunny and Danny and the whole Ultimate Descends team for spending your time on Christmas day with us.

Great afternoon of fun

Ultimate Descents runs a great tour on the Buller River! Our raft captain Tim was awesome, and the rest of the team super friendly (they made us scones and tea!). The water was exciting with some cool rapids and cliff jumps although apparently the river was at its lowest so less rapids than usual which was a bit disappointing. Nonetheless, great experience that I'd recommend to anyone.
