The Rangitaiki River trip is an incredible two hour whitewater journey that Wet'n Wild runs every day. It is perfect trip for rafters of all confidence levels including those who have never rafted before. Featuring 14 km of exciting grade three and grade four rapids, it is liquid fun from top to bottom. Passing through spectacular native bush and planted forest, this river trip takes you away from the urban world into a special New Zealand environment of pristine beauty and peace. With plenty time of time in between rapids to enjoy the scenery and the company of your fellow rafters, it provides a true river journey experience.
Trips include light refreshments consisting of fresh salad rolls, tea, coffee or juice, biscuits and fruit.
The Lower Rangitaiki offers 1.5 hours of enchanting introductory rafting suitable for first timers, families with young children and the mature adventure, who want to experience a relaxing river rafting journey in the great outdoors. Commencing from the spectacular Aniwhenua Falls, this gentle introductory rafting takes you through sheer vertical gorges lined with native bush, pine forests and dramatic rock formations. These gorges are plentiful in cascading waterfalls and a rich variety of playful bird life.
Transport can be provided from Rotorua departing at 10.30am or you may wish to meet at the Aniwhenua Falls at 11.30am, which is the starting point for this adventure.
The Wairoa is one of New Zealand's most exciting raftable rivers, and one of the most popular, with an impressive line up of full-on white water action. The one and a half hour trip starts with simple grade two cascades, and gradually builds up to thundering grade five rapids of the 'The Waterfall' and 'Rollercoaster'. The Wairoa is pure adrenaline, and is tackled by thousands of people each year. Stunning tree-lined gorges, turbulent rapids and breathtaking drops add up to top whitewater action! Trips include light refreshments consisting of fresh salad rolls, tea, coffee or juice, biscuits and fruit. The Wairoa river is controlled by a hydro dam and runs only 26 days a year - so don't miss out.
