Snow Play White Water

Snow Play White Water Combo

This winter, bring your family along to experience two of the top winter activities in the Taupo district.   Mix snow and white water to have the ultimate family adventure! This combo can be split over two days or completed in one full day if short on time.

The Grade 2 Family Float Adventure is ideal for smaller children who love adventure.  You’ll follow the river on this leisurely 1.5 hour trip down the soft, tumbling waters of the Lower Tongariro.  The magic of rafting comes alive for first time rafters, those who prefer a gentler pace and children. You still get to paddle and there are some small rapids to navigate but nothing too wet or wild.

After your white water experience, you’ll then head to Mt Ruapehu’s Whakapapa Ski area, a scenic 45min drive from our base.  At Happy Valley, you’ll be receive a full day sledding pass which includes carpet lift access, free sightseeing return chairlift ride to Knoll Ridge cafe and a free sled.
