Why we love Queenstown Rafting
With Queenstown Rafting, you can choose your experience. Shotover River for a more intense, adrenaline fuelled serious white water rafting experience or Kawarau River which is more suited for first-timers or those wanting a more relaxed experience.
About this activity
Don’t worry, Queenstown Rafting has you sorted, with included transportation to and from the Rapids. This scenic drive will take you through the incredible Skipper’s canyon and is an experience of its own (Shotover rafting).
Raft through the Kawarau River for a more scenic experience. The Kawarau River actually features as the River Anduin in the Lord of the Rings trilogy so fans get your paddles ready!
If you are after a more exhilarating experience, the rapids of the Shotover River are the ones for you. With a set of rapids that run through a 170m tunnel, you are guaranteed an adventure. You will also have a high chance of being chucked out of the raft so don’t be afraid to get wet!
After all the fun, you’ll be able to head back to their rafting base for a hot shower or sauna.
