It was amazing to do the sledging. Something I have always wanted to do. The guides Ben and Hemi were beyond amazing. They really took care of you on the water and guiding you on how to go down the river and rapids. They were so encouraging and made the sledging fun. The overall team were so lovely and friendly. My sister now wants to do the sledging when she is back home visiting. I would recommend this adventure. So much fun!

Super stimulating adventure and super nice service!! Our guides Hemi and Bean were very professional, strong and always taking care of everybody. We had a wonderful time in Kaituna river. It was exhausting but amazing! Our photographer Jess was sweet too. She took many great photos for us and euthusiastically introduced Rotorua when driving us back to our cottage. We really had a lovely morning with those Kaitiaki guys!

I have rafted the Kaituna several times and wanted to experience the river a bit more up close this time and I was not disappointed, the guides were very helpful and made the adventure much more fun. If you don't mind the water then this is the way to experience the river!

Had an awesome time sledging down the beautiful kaituna river with a great bunch of people including our very skilled, experienced and comforting guides Hemi and Caruso. Me and my partner genuinely loved the experience and would fully recommend it to all thrill seekers and people that want to try something new.
Now's the time to try out these type of things right here in our back yard in Aotearoa. Get amongst it everyone! Our country is so amazing with so much to offer.
