Activity description

Navigate through the beautiful grade 2 rapids of the Waiau River with a guided 2-hour rafting tour in the magnificent alpine landscape of Hanmer Springs.

Once you arrive at the river base before the activity, you will receive a safety briefing from a fully-qualified rafting guide.

This rafting adventure is perfect for anyone that wants to enjoy a day out on the water with friends or family. The rafts can hold up to 10 people including the guide, so this is perfect for groups outings. As you descend the river, keep an eye out for fishes swimming by and if the conditions are right, you might even jump out of the raft and float down river!

Once the rafting trip is over, you will be picked up by powerboat and return to the base.
