You set the pace:

Tell us what you want and let us design the trip for you. Our ideal is to let you sleep in, then let you have a relaxing drift downstream to the next campsite. Setup early and drink in the natural beauty. This trip is very dependent on flow levels. Book early in the season to make sure you can seize this opportunity.

The Ngaruroro has great trout fishing that is only accessible by raft, and is best experienced during spring flow (October to December). 

Customise your trip:

The possibilities are endless on these trips – please contact us to customise a trip to suit you. Go fishing, walking, swimming, or relax – tell us what you prefer.



The expedition starts from our base at on state highway 5 where we go over the expedition with you. The Helicopter will transfer us over a beautiful New Zealand landscape to the Ngaruroro river. We have lunch and then set of down the river to our first camp.


After breakfast we raft to the next camp descending into the scenic Kaweka forest, stopping for a picnic lunch on the way. We stop mid afternoon and set up camp and clients can rest, fish, swim, go for a walk our just admire the scenery.


We repeat day two but the scenery changes constantly from enclosed gorges to more open and higher ranges.


We make our way leisurely down to Kuripapango where we will have a picnic lunch and return by vehicle to our base.
