My wife and I did the Shotover River trip. The journey down the river was great fun since there had been recent heavy rain and the river was full. Never felt any concern since our guide did an excellent job. Mind you, the trip over Skippers Road was another matter - travelling on a coach down a very bumpy, unsealed, single track road with vertiginous drops was a pretty scary experience. I am filled with admiration for the skilful (lady) driver. Very glad we did it!!

Thanks GuidoBrunetti for taking time to review us. After rain is definitely great fun with way more water rushing over the rapids. Glad you didn't have to drive it eh? The Skippers Canyon Road is an adventure all by itself. It has been voted into the Top 10 most dangerous roads in the world! However, we do have the best drivers, male and female to take you with ease! You just enjoy the experience....

Had a smooth experience going rafting with them. The wetsuits comprise several separate pieces but the way they issued them (in the appropriate sizes) to us was highly organised. My friends and I were assigned to guide Chief and he was great. "Wicked, aye?"

Only let down was that it was Autumn so the water level at the Shotover River was a tad low. So although we took a grade 4/5 package, it was easy for most parts. Maybe too easy, but can't be helped.

Thanks indigoddess for taking time to review us! Glad you had fun with our Chief! River levels change depending on the rain, which obviously affects the rapids and levels of water rushing through. Come back anytime to see them really kick! Glad you still loved it!

One of the activities in QT which lets you be active do things yourself and for a longer while. Definitely try to aim to go rafting after heavy rain so that the water levels are higher (thus bigger white water parts / rapids). Road down to rafting (Skippers Road) is brilliant add on to the rafting experience. Plus there's a sauna at the end (better than nothing!).

Had such a good day out rafting! From the pick up to the end of the day we were well looked after from all members of staff.
Rafting was extremely fun, everyone had a laugh and lots of thrills to be had. Our instructor Razu was awesome and kept us safe (when one or two fell out!) Highly recommended to anyone seeking a bit of adventure! :) cheers again guys.
