Winter Rafting!

By August 15, 2016 rafting, Uncategorized No Comments

We have had a large number of smiling faces visit Turangi specifically to come rafting on the grade 3 Tongariro River.

While temperatures for the 2016 winter have been low and a prevalent topic in the news, we here at Tongariro River Rafting haven’t skipped a beat. Guest have been coming in to enjoy the fresh air, beautiful scenery, and rare environment. There is one question on everyone’s mind, “Are we going to be cold?”

Here is what some of our gets have had to say about that:

“Thoroughly enjoyed it – even in the cold weather. Great value for money.”

“It was an excellent trip in every way. The rafting itself was great; everything ran so smoothly; even though it was winter, everything was planned to keep us as warm as possible; and our guide was especially warm and personable”

“Professional, friendly, thought of everything to make our trip comfortable.”

This is only some of the feedback from guest explaining that the cold did not seem to be a factor.


When you come to our Turangi base to go whitewater rafting, we will equip everyone with the following Items:

As an added bonus, at the end of the trip, you will get a nice soak in our local hot pools and a warm tomato soup with bread and butter. For the two hours on the water you will be constantly moving as your paddling is needed to get down the river. This tends to keep the blood flowing and bodies warm. So warm, infact that many of our guests decide to go for a swim!



When the mountain is closed there are options to your vacation, and rafting goes ahead in all weather conditions. We can even pick you up from your Taupo or Turangi accommodation free of charge. Here is feedback from guests that did not let the mountain closure stop them from having a good time, it also lets us know that we are giving excellent trips to people from all over the world.


“Pristine water and scenery, two hours of awesomeness and the guides/staff were absolutely fantastic. Just good people in General. Will remember my experience for the rest of my life.”

This Company was absolutely fantastic! They had great equipment and made everyone feel safe. Everything ran smoothly and everyone had a great time.”

“Had an awesome time! Was full of thrills and nice relaxing parts! Hand an awesome guide with Awesome hair, too! I haven’t stopped telling my friends and family to go and do it.”
