The Wairoa River provides the most action packed grade 5 rafting in the country - with rapids such as the "Roller Coaster", "Devils Elbow" and "Mothers Nightmare" - to name but a few.This Is NZ's Best Grade Five White Water Action!
Post trip enjoy the complimentary "River Side BBQ lunch and refreshments"
The River is Dam controlled and only releases 26 Sundays a year.
The Wairoa River flows from the Kaimai Ranges - situated above the city of Tauraunga - a two hour drive from our River Base in Turangi. This means we can either transport you to the River from our river base in Turangi or pick you up from our Taupo facility - White Water World as we travel north to the river.
Or alternatively you can choose to meet us at Mclaren Falls Reserve.
