The evening is spent relaxing in camp or fishing in the lake or the side streams that flow into the Karamea River. This area offers some of the best trophy fishing in the world with the average size of trout being in the 9 lb. area. The fourth day starts off with a roar as we navigate the roaring lion section. All the sections of this rapid have been rafted but the entire section has never been run at the same time on any commercial rafting trip. Nine hundred meters of solid class V rapids! The rest of the second day is filled with action packed grade 4 rafting until we reach our second camp site mid-afternoon. More fishing or relaxing around the campfire with a glass of wine or beer while our chefs whip up a gourmet dinner. Day 5 dawns and we load up the rafts for the final leg, the rapids get back up to the grade V mark with names like Scare Case, Holy Shit, and Growler to name a few. If hiking is not for you, fly in via helicopter and raft out over three days.
Note: Previous rafting experience or a med-high fitness level is required.
