Rafting Vacations

There is something magical about an overnight rafting trip. Good friends, good food, plenty of laughs and the sound of a wilderness river burbling under the stars in the background. Memories are made of this.

Trips can be put together to suit any size group on the Tongariro and Mohaka headwaters. Your white water rafting adventure can be anywhere from 2 half days to 4 days long depending on how intrepid you and your crew are!

Dinner, bed and breakfast Tongariro River Rafting style

Not sure if this overnight thing is for you then try this little sampler.

Raft down the Tongariro’s Whitewaters to our campsite on the first afternoon and then relax beside the river with a good book, have a fish, or swim at the jump spot. Enjoy a great evening meal before sitting around the fire telling stories before tucking up in your tent for the night. Enjoy a hearty breakfast before breaking camp and rafting on down the river for another 1.5 hours to the take out.
