The Rangitaiki River features spectacular scenery including cascading waterfalls tumbling into the river, beautiful forest views and sheer rock gorges clad in native bush. The gentle rolling rapids never go above grade 2, making this a great family trip.

Highlights

  • Drink from natural springs coming straight out of the rocks
  • Float down some of the smaller rapids without the raft
  • Experience stunning scenery along the river
  • Enjoy a great family trip on gentle rapids

Description

The trip starts at the base of the spectacular Aniwhenua Falls, a beautiful waterfall framed by sheer rock walls. The more adventurous can start their trip by jumping into the river from a series of jump-off points at various heights. For the less adventurous, you can make your way down the rocks to the waters edge by foot. This is just the start of the amazing New Zealand scenery on offer, with several other waterfalls & spectacular forests on display along the 1.5 hour trip down the river. There is even an opportunity to stop and have a shower under a beautiful veil waterfall. The rapids are gentle, rolling rapids with very few rocks to avoid, making this a great trip for families or those looking to relax and enjoy the scenery.  Have a turn at trying to guide the raft or just relax and enjoy the view.
