White Water Rafting
The white water rafting experience can be a peaceful drifting trip on the Tongariro or a paddle-gripping white water challenge on the Mohaka for the adventure seeker who needs the thrill of blasting down endless rapids at a romping pace.
The Tongariro river is known as the perfect river for your first rafting experience. Float past ancient beech forests, through gorges, past limestone and volcanic cliffs and then race down 50m 'roller coaster' rapids at exhilarating speeds.
