Get in amongst the white water rapids on a Queenstown white water rafting adventure!

Immerse yourself in Queenstown's wild mountain rivers with whitewater rafting, river boarding, and heli-rafting. Whitewater rafting in Queenstown is a sensational way to see our spectacular alpine scenery and get your adrenaline pumping.

New Zealand’s first commercial rafting business was launched in the 1970s in upper Skippers Canyon, and since then Queenstown has become a whitewater rafting playground. Two rivers offer a grade of rapids for everyone, from the serene reaches of the mighty Kawarau River to gnarly grade five rapids on the Shotover River.

Queenstown rafting is fun for everyone, so whether you’re a beginner or an advanced whitewater enthusiast, get out there and be prepared to get soaked!
