Rangitata White Water Rafting (Peel Forest)
Peel Forest, Rangitata Available Nov-Apr $450

Fed by the enormous catchment of the Upper Rangitata Basin, this massive volume of water winds its way down the valley and where the river is wide and calm in the initial stages, you receive a full safety brief and on water training from your professional New Zealand guide.

By the time you reach the rip-roaring grade 5 section where the gorge narrows to a pinch and the action escalates, you're fully prepared and ready for what lies ahead!
The rafts do stop before these grade 5 rapid sections and you can walk around them if you prefer.

Rafting the Rangitata is an unbeatable NZ adventure!
