Kawarau River Rafting

Experience the best of the Kawarau River with two of Queenstown’s most iconic adventures – jet boating and whitewater rafting!

Race down the Kawarau River before your skilled driver sends you from high speeds into a 360-degree spin. A great introduction to whitewater rafting, the four rapids on the Kawarau River are exciting and the scenery is superb. This grade 2-3 rafting trip is perfect for first-time rafters, families and school groups. It provides a great taste of whitewater action with plenty of opportunities to splash around, try a cliff jump or even swim through a rapid!

Between rapids, you will experience calmer stretches of river, with a unique perspective of the historic Kawarau Bungy Bridge as your raft passes underneath. Experience the rugged Gibbston Valley wine region and Lord of the Rings country as you float through the rocky cliffs and blue waters of the Kawarau River.

The grand finale is the unforgettable 400-metre Dog Leg Rapid, which ends your trip on New Zealand’s largest volume commercially rafted river.
