The best in the West and one of the top 3 in the country! Perfect for seasoned rafters and first-timers this river has plenty of action, awesome scenery, and over 22 rapids (option to walk around the bigger rapids). 4-5 hours on the water with optional abseiling/rappelling, portages, canyoning, rapid swims and cliff jumps. Unlike the other rivers in NZ the Whataroa is glacial fed and always holds its volume so if the water level drops when the weather is dry the excitement doesn’t. This river has deep schist canyons and flows between towering mountains with a glacial backdrop view. We believe this river to be the best commercially rafted river in the country. It has the perfect combination of scenery and white water and the added attractions of the canyoning, portaging, cliff jump and swim rapids.
