Experience White Water Rafting on the Tongariro River with Grade 3 white water action! When taking part in our Tongariro river rafting adventure you’ll raft over 60 exciting Rapids, travel 14kms, raft through a beautiful volcanic gorge, and fuel up with on-river hot chocolate and snacks. You’ll even get the chance to explore a hidden waterfall (jump optional, weather permitting).


All these features make Tongaririo river rafting our most popular adventure. Afterwards, enjoy a hot solar powered shower before refueling with your complimentary “River Dog” (hot dog) accompanied by a cold beer/soda or hot mulled wine, while viewing your trip photos that capture the thrill of Tongariro white water rafting.

Want to bring your Go-Pro? – We are Go Pro friendly and an official Go-Pro retailer so if you want to purchase a camera and/or need an attachment then you can sort and purchase at either of our stores. For safety reasons Go-Pro or similar cameras are allowed on the river if attached to a wrist or chest harness mount. Note: we do not allow head mounts as they have caused injuries to other passengers in the past.

We also provide a professional photography and video service – products are available for purchase upon booking.
