Rangitaiki River - Grade 2 Scenic Rafting

The Rangitaiki scenic trip is an extraordinary adventure for the whole family and those wanting time on the water to enjoy the spectacular scenery.

The expedition starts at the base of Aniwhenua Falls in the lower Rangitaiki River. Spend 1.5 hours on the water as you paddle past cascading waterfalls, beautiful pine forest views and sheer rock gorges clad in native bush. Feel the thrill of rushing white water without going through it – it’s the best of both worlds!

The gentle rolling rapids never go above grade 2, making this a great trip for families and for those looking for a more laid back experience.
