White Water Sledging is the best way to get up close and personal with the mighty waters of the southern lakes of New Zealand. Take on the rapids of the historic Kawarau River on our river purpose sledges, designed and built in New Zealand! They are...more
This was a highlight of my trip to NZ. Such a fun experience and the guides were fantastic. Sure, the water is chilly at first, but you quickly get over it. It's worth the money. I would love to do it again. I've never heard...More
This is a real fun activity and very well run. All the gear is supplied and full instruction is given by the very professional guides. On the day, we were accompanied by Rose & Dallas and they both did a great job showing us what...More
I have to say up front that white water sledging was fantastic fun and pretty much suitable for all ages for anyone with basic swimming ability. However the actual getting into the river left much to be desired. First off, Frogz isn't (any longer?) an...More

Very fun alternative to whitewater rafting. Unfortunately the rapids were not to impressive, but if they were rated higher or were more demanding it may deter tourists. Too bad certain river sections or alternative river options were not available.
Overall i would highly recommend. Rose,...More
WARNING--- the title is a tad bit misleading. When I heard the term "river boarding" I expected some sort of fascist torture technique, but it was nothing like that at all. In fact, it was a quite fun experience, in spite of the fact that...More
