Activity description

Sledging is a great way to get up close and personal with the white waters of the Southern Lakes region.

Do you love thrills, spills, stunning views and whitewater? There is nothing more exciting than a whitewater river boarding excursion on the spectacular Kawarau River. Choose the board you want to ride, based on the level of adrenaline you want to experience, harness the power of the Kawarau River and be prepared to have the outing of a lifetime. Get ready to be truly amazed with the scenery, your adrenaline will be pumping and you will be left with the feeling you have just conquered one magnificent wild river.

A great way to get up close and personal with the mighty waters of the Kawarau River. Ride grade 2-3 Roaring Meg rapids on our custom made sledges.

This all weather physical adventure takes you through fast flowing rapids, standing waves, boils and whirlpools. The chill out final section allows enjoyment of the amazing Kawarau River scenery.
