Test the white waters with a Grade II Gentle Family Float (adult/child $95/79) or splash straight into the Grade III white-water rapids ($139/125). Turangi's original rafting company also hires out mountain bikes (two hours free when you book a trip) and runs guided rides, including 42 Traverse, Tongariro River Trail, Tree Trunk Gorge and Fishers Track. Ask about multi-activity combos.

Raft fishing is available in summer (price on enquiry).
