Tongariro White Water Rafting from Taupo and Turangi

The Tongariro white water is regarded as one of New Zealand's best half-day white water rafting adventures. Raft over 50 exciting rapids, through a beautiful volcanic gorge. Explore a hidden waterfall (jump optional, weather permitting) and enjoy some hot chocolate and chocolate candy on the river. Afterwards, refuel with your complimentary River Dog (hot dog) and cold beer/soda or hot mulled wine. Trips depart daily and year round, complimentary pickup from Taupo is available.

  • After you reach the river base, your guide will provide you with rafting gear. Once dressed for the river, one of your professional Kiwi river guides will give you a full safety briefing before you load onto your vehicle for the twenty minute drive up to the river. During the drive to the river, one of the guides will point out the many amazing landmarks along the way and tell you of the Maori history,myths and legends associated with the area.

    At the river, we will grab some great shots of you and the group and then set you off on your adventure. You will raft over 9 miles (14km), through over 50 class 3 rapids. Three-quarters of the way down the river, you will pull over and visit a hidden waterfall. Here you'll walk up a small side stream for approximately five minutes until arriving at a beautiful two tiered waterfall. Here you can choose to climb a short rope and jump off the waterfall into the pool below (weather permitting). This proves to be a highlight for most, adding another 25 minutes to the trip. If the weather is not suitable for the Waterfall excursion then we offer a different optional cliff jump.

    After the waterfall excursion, you'll float through the longest flat part on the river and enjoy hot chocolate and chocolate candy before taking on the last 30 minutes of the journey. At the last rapid we collect some fantastic action photos of you rafting. Once off the river, you will be transported back to our base for a hot shower. Once changed, you can enjoy a complimentary cold beer/soda or hot mulled wine as well as a river dog (hot dog) while taking a look at your trip's photos.

    A river guide will host you, thanking you and bidding you farewell once the tour is complete.
