Tongariro River Rafting

Rafting in Turangi

Test the Tongariro River's white waters with a Grade II family float (adult/child $99/85) or splash straight into its Grade III rapids ($145/129). There's also a full-day trip fishing from a raft ($700) and a special blue duck tour ($179) with the company owner, learning about the endangered bird as you float – part of your payment goes to the Blue Duck Project.

Tūrangi's original rafting company also hires out mountain bikes and runs guided mountain-bike rides, including 42 Traverse, Tongariro River Trail and Tree Trunk Gorge. Ask about multi-activity combos.
