Enjoy your first rafting experience in the company of Tongariro rivers most experienced rafting guides, Garth and Leigh Oakden, who know this stretch of river like the back of their hands.
The name of this popular attraction describes the activity perfectly – an enjoyable day, floating along the Lower Tongariro River, for every member of the family. Dad, Mum and the kids – even Granny and Grandpa – will love the serenity of floating along the magical tumbling waters of the Lower part of Tongariro River. This 100% Kiwi owned and operated company have been on Tongariro since 1987; their friendly staff are highly trained professionals, so you can feel at peace with your family on board, allowing you to just enjoy the scenic beauty of the New Zealand landscape.

This blissfully scenic adventure will have you wishing the day would last for ever! The trip itself lasts for a good hour and a half, and throughout that time, you'll experience the magical atmosphere of the marvellous 'river meets woodland' scenery. The amazing scenery is not only beautiful, but is also interesting for everyone involved – especially the children. The ride will allow you to immerse yourself in the atmosphere without riding large rapids; although, you still have the option to paddle and there are some small, fun rapids (but nothing wild).
