Activity description

Combine spectacular scenery and great rapids for an awesome whitewater rafting adventure. From the buzz of 'Geoff's Joy', a torrent of Whitewater, to stunning native and plantation forest, the Rangitaiki River has it all!

With its 14km of white water exhilaration, this Rangitaiki rafting experience is a great way to spend the day, whether you are on your own or with a group of family and friends looking for a little adventure. This grade 3-4 rafting trip is suitable for all active people aged 13 years and no previous experience is necessary!

The Rangitaiki is the ideal river to “get the hang of it” before hurtling yourself into the fast action of the Wairoa or Kaituna River and is sheer solitude, fun and excitement without the steep drops experienced on the Grade 5 rivers.

The meeting point is at the river base in Murupara, just 45 minutes from Rotorua on State Highway 38. However a shuttle can also pick you up from central Rotorua prior to the adventure.
