White Water Rafting

Specialising in small group tours Eco Rafting Adventures have trips for everyone, from scenic floats and family fun, to rapids and white water!

You can choose your excitement, from medium-level class 2 and 3 rapids to the most extreme grade 4-5 whitewater rafting that New Zealand has to offer.

This family-and-friends operated business has been on these river systems for over 10 years. Their experience lets you find the perfect rivers, raft the best lines, and camp in the most secluded and picturesque spots. They love what they do and really get a kick out of taking guests through some of the most spectacular scenery they have ever seen.

Having over 15 years experience on these rivers, and being owner-operated and guided, Eco Rafting’s thorough knowledge of the terrain via helicopter scouting allows them to choose the rivers with the best rapids and scenery, ensuring you get the best rafting NZ has to offer. Drive and hike in options for those on a tighter budget, and all rivers flow under the main highway, so they are easy to find and no time is lost traveling. The pick of the best are the Whataroa river 1 day helicopter access rafting and the half day Waiho river at Franz Josef.
