Challenge Rafting Kawarau River Jet-Raft

Experience the best of the Kawarau River with two of Queenstown’s most iconic adventures – jet boating and whitewater rafting!

Race down the Kawarau River before your skilled driver sends you from high speeds into a 360-degree spin.

Continue the excitement with your Kawarau rafting adventure. This grade 2-3 rafting trip is perfect for first-time rafters, families and groups. It provides a great taste of whitewater action with plenty of opportunities to splash around, try a cliff jump or even swim through a rapid! The grande finale is the unforgettable 400 metre Dog Leg Rapid which ends your trip on New Zealand’s largest volume commercially rafted river.
