Overview

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 buoyant and manoeuvrable, perfect for running rapids and spinning in whirlpools! Enjoy this pristine alpine white water adventure in one of New Zealand`s most scenic rivers. Haven’t had enough? We head back up to the top for another exhilarating 6 km run. You will end up a fully-fledged Frog with a big smile! The Roaring Meg section of the mighty Kawarau is graded 2-3. No experience is required but you must be able to swim, be reasonably fit and confident in water. Our team is comprised of seasoned professionals. Frogz has been running white water sledging trips from Queenstown and Wanaka since 1991.

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

We did the Roaring Meg. It was awesome. Some hard work is required in some areas but once you are through the rapids it is a nice gentle drift the rest of the way.

We opted to try the river sledging due to the fact that we aren't surfers, so the surfing option didn't appeal to us, neither did the canyoning or the speed boat river experience. What an adventure! The Roaring Meg gave us a few grade 3...More

So much fun!! The staff was friendly, personable, knowledgeable. There was a gal in our group that didn't seem to be able to swim very well and they pretty much hand-guided her down the river safely! The nicest part was that that didn't deter the...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
