You will enjoy anything up to grade 3 white water rapids along with views of some of the most gorgeous landscapes in New Zealand!

Enjoy a fun and scenic rafting trip in the lower section of the Rangitata River. Depending on your preferences, this trip can range form gentle to more thrilling. You simply need to give your guide a heads up and they will ensure that you get exactly what you’re looking for! As you make your way along these easy rapids, you will learn all about the skill involved in guiding such a raft and you will even get a turn at the helm! Take on the challenge of navigating the raft through the rapids and take charge of your crew to ensure that they work together as a team. The only sounds that will be heard above the splashing water will be that of laughter and cheering! Of course, your guide will be right there alongside you all the way to make sure that everyone is kept perfectly safe.

As you float along the sparkling blue waters, you can relax and enjoy the amazing views that surround you.

You will also have the opportunity of learning more about the local history of the area and the Adand family who were the first settlers. Their descendants still practice farming at Mt Peel Station today!

If you like, you can also enjoy a ride in one of the inflatable kayaks (rubber duckies) which have a way of making the Grade 2 rapids feel even more thrilling with all that water splashing in your face!

After enjoying an hour and a half to two hours out on the river, it’s time to return to the lodge for a well-deserved hot shower.

These trips are operated on demand which allows us to cater according to your time schedule. Tuck into a meal at our lodge before or after your rafting adventure – depending on the time of your trip.

You will only need to bring your swimsuit, a towel, a thirst for adventure and an enthusiastic smile.

This trip includes a scrumptious meal at our delightfully rustic lodge, all comfort and safety equipment (life jacket, splash jacket, polypro, helmet and booties if your size is available) and an hour and a half to two hours of exciting rafting and swimming fun.

This trip is ideal for families, groups with a wide variety of abilities and for those who are looking for a fun, gentle floating trip. The minimum age for this trip is 6 years (conditions may apply) and no previous experience is necessary.
