Queenstown is home to some of the best white water rafting in not only New Zealand but indeed the world, and a variety of half day trips on both the Shotover and Kawarau Rivers are available that will cater to rafters - both experience and aspiring - of levels both advanced and new. These exhilarating trips provide action, excitement and thrills as you splash through the crystal clear waters and navigate the approaching rapids accompanied by our raft mates and skilled, experienced rafting instructor.

Each river offers different scenery as well as a different level of challenge - the Shotover River contains rapids of grade 3-5 and is thus more difficult, while the Kawarau has grade 2-3, so make your chose based on how confident you feel from the list of Queenstown whitewater rafting experiences below to ensure you have the best time possible from this range of available adventures!
