Michelle 3 years ago This rafting experience was out of this world! I have rafted in Queenstown on the Shotover and although they both have there different bonuses, this river was just absolutely incredible!! I was amazed at how many rapids we went on and as for the waterfall - OMG!! I was sooooo petrified before we went over, but once we did and I was at the bottom, I wanted to do it all over again! The scenery on this river is also stunning!! A really cool experience! Not to mention, the guides were awesome!
