The Ultimate Tongariro Multi-Day Adventure. With all your expedition gear strapped in the raft, descend down exciting rapids before arriving at our beautiful River Campsite. Here you can sit back and relax, with the camp fire glowing and absorb nature while the stresses of life seem simply to disappear. The next day awake to the sounds of bird song and the gentle hum of the river. After a hearty breakfast and hot coffee – take on the rest of the Tongariro Multi-Day Adventure.

The Tongariro Multi-Day Rafting Adventure is a very special experience that few get to enjoy! The Tongariro River is world-famous for its incredible scenery, pristine water and incredibly rare wild life. Only with Rafting New Zealand will you get to experience the 60+ Grade 3 Rapids of the Tongariro River with an authentic professional Kiwi raft guide.

A unique blend of fun, excitement, adrenaline, education and culture is what you’ll receive with our Tongariro Whitewater Grade 3 Adventure. Experience authentic Maori myths and legends shared by professional New Zealand guides that have a special connection to them; witness some of the world’s most pristine environments from crystal clear waters to native flora and fauna, as well as the chance to see one of New Zealand’s most endangered birds in it’s natural environment – the Whio (or, Blue duck) – famous for its ‘whistle’, rather than ‘quack’. Enjoy on-river snacks and an optional cliff-jump for those feeling confident.

Let’s not forget the rapids! There’s over 60 of them during our 14km (8 mile) journey, and they each have a story our guides will share with you as you rock-and-roll down the river, bouncing off of canyon walls and over boulders in this natural adventure playground we call home.

Afterwards, refuel with a complimentary drink, and a Hot Dog while viewing photos from the trip you can also purchase.

Riding rapids through an awesomely beautiful and untouched natural volcanic gorge is a uniquely spiritual experience and who better to guide you than the professionals at New Zealand’s best Rafting Company?
