Family-friendly rafting adventure

New Zealand’s best family rafting adventure happens just a few minutes outside of Turangi on the lower reaches of the Tongariro River – world-famous for its pristine water, incredible scenery, and awesome wildlife.

Suitable for ages three and up, our Tongariro Family Fun is an adventure for people wanting a safe, intimate introduction to white-water rafting. The 8km (5-mile) journey is perfect for families with young children, more senior citizens or those that are just not very water-confident.

The entire Tongariro Family Fun adventure is ‘hands-on’ and engaging; it so unique that you will think you are miles away from civilization while riding a series of 20+ rapids – with our professional raft guides ensuring everyone is enjoying themselves with authentic Maori myths and legends unique to this part of the country, fun, laughter, water education, safety tips and expert trivia about the fragile Tongariro environment.

The Tongariro Family Fun Adventure also includes a visit to the National Trout Centre where you can feed the trout and enjoy snacks provided. Plus, an optional cliff jump and swim in the river are also offered to those that are feeling confident, all within a safely monitored environment.
