Tongariro River White Water Grade 3
The Best Grade 3 Rafting Adventure in New Zealand
The Tongariro Whitewater Grade 3 is our most popular adventure and 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 50+ 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 50 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?
