    Tongariro River Rafting
    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    Arrive here 15 minutes before your trip time and be welcomed by our friendly team of guides. Sit back and relax with a cup of tea or coffee while you wait for the trip to begin. Once everyone has arrived, your guide will talk you through all the gear that we will provide you for the river (you only need to bring your swimwear and a towel). Then you'll get changed in the changing rooms and head out in the bus to the river for a few hours of rafting! At the top of the river your guide will talk you through safety on the river and show you how to use the paddle before heading out onto the beautiful Tongariro River. Unforgettable adventures await as you navigate 60 rapids in a 13km stretch – more rapids in one stretch than anywhere in New Zealand, how cool is that? The Tongariro River’s grade 3 rapids are perfect for first-time rafters: thrills and spills galore without any extreme drops requiring experience. Soaked to the skin and grinning from ear to ear, return to our base for a hot drink and a snack. In winter we’ll stop by the local hot pools to get you extra toasty.

It was both my partner's and I's first-time white water rafting and it was amazing! We had Brayden as our guide and he was awesome. He was experienced, confident, and made you laugh! It was the highlight of our holiday down in the Taupo region and definitely worth the money.
