Rafting on the West Coast is an adrenaline pumping experience that takes you through some of New Zealand's most spectacular river systems.

Rapids to suit all abilities, stunning gorges, and underground river options - what's not to love about rafting on the West Coast? A quintessentially New Zealand experience, choose from everything from a few hours of easy rafting to the most extreme grade of white water rapids in the country. Stop for a soak in naturally-heated riverside rock pools, or explore local backcountry hiking trails for a few hours. Or, if you're after a seriously thrilling experience, try black water rafting in an underground caving system.
