Went on a hell-rafting trip in 2013 with my brother, father and boyfriend. It was literally one of the best things we did in all of the 5 months we were in NZ. Exciting rapids, beautiful nature and stories, we had a blast! Would recommend this experience to everyone!!!

I went on a helicopter rafting day trip up the Whataroa and it was a fabulous experience from start to finish. The company is small and family run from their home in the village of Ross. From there we took the van to the river, before loading our gear and taking the chopper to our starting point. The day was... More

Kristen was so helpful from the beginning and although we planned to raft the Whataroa river with a helicopter ride, unfortunately the weather did not allow us to do this. Kristen offered up an alternative... More

We ended up leaving an hour later than we were supposed to because the others in the group couldn't find the place (admittedly not the company's fault). However, from then on in the whole thing was very unprofessional from the company's side. Where we got geared up was simply someone's house - the van to get us there was just... More

Hi Tris, We had our regular 4WD van breakdown and instead of cancelling the trip we bent over backwards to get you on the river. The house we got you geared up at was our house where we live, we invited you in for a cup of coffee and snacks. We organized another vehicle to use so we could get... More

Josh and his team organised our group of 5 families to helecopter in, setup camp, and raft out the next day. The organisation was superb, campfire yarns priceless, location perfect, and rafting superb with the all experienced team. Our kids will never forget this trip and describe it as their "best ever". Thanks, The Allan's
