Tongariro River Rafting

This half-day Tongariro River journey is one of the best rafting adventures in New Zealand. The rapids are Grade Three, which makes this an ideal adventure for expert or first-time rafters alike. In 2 1/2 hours you navigate over 60 roller coaster rapids with an expert guide at the helm. A large part the top section of this trip can only be accessed by raft or kayak so you’ll see plenty of spectacular unspoilt wilderness.
