What you need to know

Couple two Queenstown adrenaline activities together in one combo and take a 25 minute jet boat ride transfer to your white water rafting adventure. The Kawarau River is the ideal Queenstown whitewater rafting destination for an introduction to the sport, with four rapids that provide a great balance of excitement and scenic enjoyment. Navigate a high-speed ride down Lake Wakatipu to Kawarau River where your whitewater rafting guides are awaiting your arrival.

Now, its time to encounter rapids ranging between grades 2 to 3, with a route taken to suit the group's ability level. Between rapids, you'll experience some calm stretches of river coupled with a unique perspective of the historic Kawarau Bungee Bridge that your raft will gradually pass under. Capping off the rafting adventure and acting as a "Grand Finale" is the highly memorable, 400m Dog Leg Rapid that will give you a final rush for the day and provide a fitting end to your whitewater rafting adventure on New Zealand's largest volume commercially-crafted river. The adrenaline packed half day activity is available to book online here.
