We absolutely loved the whole experience on Buller river, including the rapids, the quiet parts (great for a rest and a bit of conversation), falling out (twice - once was intentional), jumping off the rock into the river, floating down the river at the end, etc. Very friendly and accommodating service from Sonny and Ari.

Our family of 4 went on the 1 day Karamea Heli-rafting. All complete novices so we were a little apprehensive beforehand, but the guides were amazing and although it was a thrilling experience, we felt safe throughout. The trip went through beautiful natural wilderness, a nice lunch was provided, and we stopped to do some boulder hopping and soak in the magical environment.

What a fantastic time we have on Buller river! That was an extraordinary expirience for us. We got much more then we were anticipated. The guides were very knowledgeable and funny. We enjoyed every minute on the river. We are 66-years and 71-years old people (reasonable fit people). We would highly recommend this company as you can trust them notwithstanding your age and lack of such experience. Photos which we received from Solana are beautiful. Thank you all!

We booked a family rafting trip, not sure our youngest (10yrs) would handle the gorge trip. Turns out she wanted more excitement and the oldest (14yrs) wanted less. Sonny our guide tried his best to add some excitement where he could. The scenery was beautiful and we had a great time. Cost was a lot higher than our friends trip the previous day with another company. However Sonny was brilliant and made the extra cost ok with me.

I’ve been wanting to do this for years so dragged my two sons along and it was everything I imagined and more! So well organised and safe but fun and light hearted too. Would definitely recommend :)
