Rangitata Gorge River Rafting

Quick & easy instant bookings for Rangitata Rafts

Your chance to navigate 10kms of one of NZ’s most beautiful rivers, our exhilarating grade 5 adventure will get your heart pounding.

Starting off on the calmer upper stretches of the Rangitata river, you’ll have plenty of time to perfect your paddling skills and warm up through the grade 2 & 3 rapids before arriving at the grade 5 section of the Rangitata Gorge.

At this point you can choose if you want to continue rafting through the thunderous rapids, tight gaps and rocky outcrops of the Gorge itself or would rather walk around and admire them from the side.

To cool off after all the action, there’ll be a chance to go for a surf and take a dip in the calmer sections.

Along with your guide who will be in the boat with you, our photographer will be on the river bank catching all the action on camera and a safety kayaker will paddle alongside you on every trip.

Worried about the cold? We supply all the equipment to ensure your experience is not only safe but comfortable. This includes a thermal, polar fleece, jacket, wetsuit, booties as well as life jacket and helmet.
