Tongariro River Access 14

Access 14: The Big Daddy of the river. This grade 4 section of the river only flows on 3 days of the year. Come and experience the premier section of grade 4 whitewater in New Zealand. This steep continuous section of whitewater will have you grinning ear to ear the same as your guides. In fact guides from all over the place want to come and work when these flow days happen it is so good.
