    Tongariro River Rafting
    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    Arrive here 15 minutes before your trip time and be welcomed by our friendly team of guides. Sit back and relax with a cup of tea or coffee while you wait for the trip to begin. Once everyone has arrived, your guide will talk you through all the gear that we will provide you for the river (you only need to bring your swimwear and a towel). Then you'll get changed in the changing rooms and head out in the bus to the river for a few hours of rafting! At the top of the river your guide will talk you through safety on the river and show you how to use the paddle before heading out onto the beautiful Tongariro River. Unforgettable adventures await as you navigate 60 rapids in a 13km stretch – more rapids in one stretch than anywhere in New Zealand, how cool is that? The Tongariro River’s grade 3 rapids are perfect for first-time rafters: thrills and spills galore without any extreme drops requiring experience. Soaked to the skin and grinning from ear to ear, return to our base for a hot drink and a snack. In winter we’ll stop by the local hot pools to get you extra toasty.

Stunning views! Knowledgeable/skilled guides. The banter was great. Trip was well organised.

Icy cold day yet the gear provided, kept us really warm. Waterproof masks (covid reasons) were provided, easy to breathe and didnt matter of the mask got wet.

I'd definitely do the trip again.

A must-do experience on the Central Plateau
Sep 2021
As a family group consisting of 10 people - ranging from 11 to 65, who were in Turangi for a Birthday we decided to go rafting as a group activity. TRR couldn't have been more helpful. They gave us a great deal, and we were very well looked after. The guides were amazing (especially Drew - who my 11-year-old daughter thought was pretty cool), and the trip itself was great. Amazing scenery, crystal clear water full of trout, and numerous Whiō native ducks to see on the way down. This is a great activity with just enough activity and excitement to suit everyone.

Aug 2021 • Family
An awesome adventure for our family of four (kids aged 11 and 13). Our apprehensive 11 year old loved it. Felt safe with our awesome host Drew-we literally laughed the whole afternoon (thanks for putting up with us Drew!) Not too cold despite the snow nearby-the midway hot drink was very much appreciated as was the soup at the end. A very professional crew who know how to have fun whilst keeping you safe. Definitely recommend for families. Thank you

From the moment we arrived at HQ to the moment we left, these guys and gals delivered the goods! A very streamlined operation had us equipped of all our gear, briefed, loaded up and in the coach before the previous visitors complementary fresh foot-stomped Tomato soup had time to cool. Our Guide kept us entertained and engaged with a decent flurry of jokes and yarns and hilighted points of interest along the river. Overall, we had a great time and will definitely be back.

Winter Family Fun
Jul 2021 • Family
A great family activity and day out. "Amazingly awesome trip would do it again" (from the initially reluctant 10yr old. Surprisingly warm with the provided gear, and an excellent guide in Gipsy, and his repertoire of bird calls, tall tales and 'Dad Jokes'.

Awesome experience! Money well spent. The guides were on to it and very knowledgeable. Even some good jokes. The team look after you and you get so much for what they pay for. Rafting, hot pools, hot soup, the photos and video. All round good time! Highly recommend
