Queenstown Canoeing and Rafting Trips

Canoeing and rafting are a great way to explore the surrounding wildlife and scenery of Queenstown and the Southern Lakes District. Situated on Lake Wakatipu and surrounded by the Southern Alps, this is a great place for these Queenstown Canoeing and Rafting water adventures.

There are plenty of options for all types of travelers – from easy and fun safaris to exhilarating rafting adventures. For kayakers you can take a guided or self-guided kayak trip from Queenstown Bay on Lake Wakatipu; or take a Premium Guided Kayak trip to Moke Lake surrounded by the Southern Alps

Those travelling with families will enjoy the shimmering channels, hidden side streams, and dramatic chasms of the glacier-fed Dart River. Combining easy rafting with a thrilling jet boat ride, you will be guaranteed a full day of fun and adventure. Families will also enjoy our Flow Fun canoes and rafts on Kawarau River. It’s designed specifically for those seeking a more leisurely and scenic water adventure in Queenstown.

Those who are looking for a more challenging rafting trip, head over to Skipper’s Canyon and experience its incredible twists and turns and exhilarating rapids.
