Ideal for: Family groups (recommended for children over 9 years), business groups and tourists.
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.
An Ideal Weekend Trip
This trip is very dependent on flow levels. Book early in the season to make sure you can seize this opportunity.
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 on a small shelf half way down the gorge and then raft out next morning the scenery changes from an enclosed gorge to more open and higher ranges then to a braided river.
We will take out at Whana Whana in the afternoon of the second day and return you to Napier or our base.
This trip is seldom rafted due to the dependence on rain and river flows. It is not as dependent on rain as the Upper Ngaruroro, but don’’t be disappointed if we have to change the trip to one of our others or need to cancel. How ever it is an awesome raft trip in the right conditions so if we suggest a change to this raft trip it will be a once in a lifetime experience.
