How does it work? 

You can book this special online via either the Whitewater Rafting page or Family Float page.

Alternatively, you can call us on 0800 10 10 24 and we can book it in for you!

Around your rafting, will fit you with bikes and helmets, give you directions and send you out onto the Tongariro River Trail!  You can also opt to do this the day of your rafting, or another day at your leisure (just let us know!)

This ride is suitable for families and beginners,  will take up to two hours and send you around the river you have just rafted down – giving you a different viewpoint.

Once you are finished your bike ride, we will give you vouchers so you can go down to the Tokaanu Hot Pools for a nice long soak in the natural thermal pools after a day of adventures!

After all of this, we will email you photos and a 360 video of your rafting adventure so you can keep reliving the day!
