Wairoa Extreme Rafting

NZ’s most thrilling White Water Rafting
Wairoa River Rafting

The Wairoa River rafting experience delivers a truly thrilling river trip, providing an action-packed, Grade 5 journey that is unique to Wairoa. Rafting through rapids such as the “Roller Coaster”, “Devils Elbow” and “Mothers Nightmare” is sure to take your breath away. If you want an experience full of action, then Wairoa white water rafting is for you! Wairoa river rafting can only take place when the Wairoa river flows, between the months of October – May.

It begins in the Kaimai Ranges (situated above the city of Tauranga), a 2-hour drive North from our River Base in Turangi. We can either provide transport to the River from our Base or pick you up on route from our Taupo rafting facility, as we travel north to the river.

Alternatively you can choose to meet us at McLaren Falls Reserve, where the river begins – comprehensive driving directions supplied upon booking.

On-river apparel, professional guides and rafting equipment are provided – all you need for this Wairoa river rafting adventure is a reasonable level of fitness and a great attitude!
