About Tongariro River Rafting
Tongariro River Rafting is the most experienced outdoor adventure company on the Tongariro River. We create journeys, share stories and bring people closer to nature through biking, fishing and rafting. We celebrate 25 years as a family owned and operated business in 2015. We're passionate about showing off our amazing region to visitors and are dedicated to preserving the natural environment of the Tongariro River for future generations – so much so, we founded the Blue Duck Project – with the goal of returning the rare native Blue Duck to its traditional habitat along the Tongariro River. Our adventures include Grade 3 white water rafting trips, family floats for the younger rafters or first timers, mountain biking and fishing. On your Grade 3 white water rafting trip, you will have an unforgettable 2.5 hours navigating over 60 heart-pounding rapids with an expert guide at the helm. All of our guides are highly trained professionals and our equipment is top quality. You'll even enjoy a deli style lunch after your trip (hot soup in winter). Prepare yourself for one of the most stunning white water rafting adventures in New Zealand – we know this river like the back of our paddle! “Oar-some!!”

We had a fabulous time! “Mad Dog” was particularly attentive with Miss 6 who really struggled with all the gear she had to wear. He went above and beyond to help make her comfortable before we left HQ. Rest assured, as soon as we hit the water her discomfort was forgotten and we both had a great time, smiling ear to ear the whole ride!!

Awesome trip on the Tongariro, stunning scenery and great guiding. Our children were most impressed that our guide Evan never got us stuck. Can't wait to do it again.
