Queenstown Rafting - Queenstown

After your adventure, there are sauna and hot showers available, plus the great Cavells Café & Bar next door – the perfect place to unwind and relive what you just did with your mates.

Overview

White water rafting, and more, in the adventure capital of New Zealand, Queenstown. Three different trips for all abilities, plus 'action extras'.

Professionally-run with nearly 40 years experience, Queenstown Rafting is the original, and best operator of high octane adventure in Queenstown. It doesn't matter if you're experienced or a novice - there's an adventure here with your name on it.

The Kawarau River is ideal for beginners, and it's here where much of Lord Of The Rings was filmed, as the River Anduin, so you'll be paddling right through the heart of Middle Earth. There are gentle waters, plus some great rapids (grade 2-3) to get to grips with, as well as other boats who'll try and fight you for position, so be prepared to get VERY wet...

The Shotover River trip includes a magical coach journey into Skippers Canyon, along narrow clifftop roads with sheer drops below, a real-life theme park ride. Running through the canyon is the Shotover River, and your ride will begin with nice, calm waters, but you know what's coming up as you descend into the valley....yep, some grade 3-5 beauties that'll really challenge you. With names, like Rock Garden, After Shock, Toilet and Pinball, these rapids are the real deal. Not only that, but your 'finale' is paddling through the 170m Oxenbridge Tunnel before flying over the Cascade Rapid at the end.

The Landsborough River trip is a three-day adventure to a remote wilderness, where you'll paddle through thick rainforest, glaciers and beside mountains thousands of feet high. The trip includes grade 3-4 rapids plus all meals, large tents, equipment and transfers.

If that isn't enough, try an Rafting Combo, and mix the rafting with bungy jumping, jetboating, skydiving and more. Not for the faint-hearted, these Action Combos guarantee you an unforgettable experience.

Flow Fun Canoes are a great family option that offer a more scenic and gentle float trip down the start of the Kawarau River in inflatable kayaks, or rafts that are paddled by the guides.

After your adventure, there are sauna and hot showers available, plus the great Cavells Café & Bar next door - the perfect place to unwind and relive what you just did with your mates.
