Because of our exclusive partnership with Mount Ruapehu, we are able to offer the following discounted prices.

The Family Float Adventure is perfect for smaller children (aged 3+).

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.
