Queenstown White Water Rafting

Queenstown is renowned as the adventure capital of New Zealand. Situated on Lake Wakatipu and surrounded by the Southern Alps, this is the ideal place to do some Queenstown White Water Rafting. The Remarkables and surrounding mountains are popular with skiers in winter, and feed the Kawarau and Shotover Rivers year round.

As a result these rivers are the ideal playground for adventure seekers looking for a thrilling rafting trip, either on its own or combined with some of the other adventure activities in the region, including combinations with a bungy jump, jetboat ride, skydive, canyon swing or helicopter flight.

For those looking to escape into the mountains, the 3 day Landsborough Valley Rafting trip allows you to explore some of New Zealand’s most inaccessible and unspoilt regions; that only the intrepid adventurer normally sees. As you paddle and camp your way through the Southern Alps to the South Westland World Heritage Area on the West Coast of New Zealand at Haast; seeing 10,000 ft peaks, thick rainforest and hanging glaciers.
