Lower Ngaruroro Gorge - Grade 3

Raft on the crystal clear waters of one of the most beautiful rivers in the world. Rafting guides will lead you into the untamed gorge of the lower Ngaruroro river. Drink cold water straight from a tumbling waterfall, between picturesque rapids inside an awesome continuous gorge surrounded by the Kaweka Forest Park. See what most people never get to see. Experience the true face of wild New Zealand.


Recommended for those 12 years and older.

An Ideal Weekend Trip

This trip is dependent on flow levels, best experienced during spring flow (October to December).

We can meet at our base or in Napier and drive to the put-in at Kuripapango for a morning start on the first day.

We make camp half way down the gorge and then raft out the next morning, the scenery on this trip is constantly changing.

We will take out at Whana Whana in the afternoon of the second day and return you to Napier or our base.


Once your adventure is booked, we will be in touch with you to discuss and plan your trip in detail, including start and end times, location and what you will need to bring. 

Contact us for availability or just go to our online booking system for preset dates and prices.
