    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.

Today we rafted the Tongariro River with my teenage boys and I can't say enough about how fantastic our experience was! If you're looking for an activity for your entire family - this is it! Our teenagers called it the highlight of our time in Taupo and I have to second that!

We loved our exhilarating trip on the pristine and crystal clear upper Tongariro on a grade 3 ride. Gliding, or crashing, in white water between volcanic native forest-covered bluffs, spotting trout gliding by underneath. Bumps, spills and thrills, but all in good fun under the

Great guide in Finn but the whole team was really professional - a really fun morning through white water. Did have to Google some of Finn's wilder claims after we left but all those about the blue ducks were absolutely correct and seeing two of those capped a great trip -
