Tour description provided by Viator

Enjoy Rangitaiki River and it's spectacular scenery on this grade 2 white water rafting tour. Laid back fun, this river has spectacular scenery, including cascading waterfalls tumbling into the river, beautiful forest views and sheer rock gorges clad in native bush. The gentle rolling rapids make this a great trip for families and for those looking for a more relaxed experience.

This trip starts at the base of the spectacular Aniwhenua Falls, a beautiful waterfall framed by sheer rock walls.

For the adventurous you can start your trip by jumping into the river, a series of jump off points at various heights are available. For the less adventurous you can make your way down the rocks to the waters edge.

This is just the start of an amazing piece of scenic New Zealand with several other waterfalls and spectacular forest as you wind your way for one and a half hours down the river.

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. There is even the chance to stop and have a shower under a beautiful veil waterfall. Have a turn at trying to guide the raft or just relax and enjoy the view.
