You’ll be seduced
by The Rangitikei. It grabs your imagination, knots your
stomach at high water and let’s your spirit run free
on sunny low water days. It’ll beat you, rollick
you and if you’re not scared sometimes, it’s
possible you’re a paddle short of the imagination
needed to stay alive!
Get an overload of joy, exhilaration, and ‘stomach
in your mouth’ moments when you raft this challenging
white water. Ready? Contact
It's Grade Five rafting - that's Class
Five - if you're from the USA - on the Rangitikei
River, near Taihape, New Zealand. This is steep, technical,
New Zealand White Water Rafting at it's best.
Because you can! You’ve already faced powerful rapids,
confused, broken water and large drops and you’re
ready for more. You’re someone who wants to test
yourself through fast boiling eddies and you’re realistic
about the personal risk.
Passionate skilled guides will be with you all the way.
Come join us. Slide into a wetsuit; get your adventure
booties on, a helmet on your head, a life jacket on your
back, and bring a Grade Five attitude!
