New Zealand White Water Rafting FAQs

Where can I white water raft in NZ?

New Zealand offers numerous locations for white water rafting enthusiasts. Some of the most popular rafting destinations include the Rangitata River, the Kaituna River near Rotorua (famous for the Tutea Falls), and the Buller River on the South Island's West Coast. You can also enjoy rafting adventures on the Shotover River in Queenstown, the Mohaka River near Napier, and the Wairoa River, known for its exhilarating grade-five rapids.

 

What is the highest waterfall in New Zealand for white water rafting?

If you're seeking the thrill of white water rafting near the highest waterfall in New Zealand, you'll want to head to the Kaituna River. Here, you can experience the world-famous Tutea Falls, which is the highest commercially rafted waterfall globally. The 7-meter drop provides an adrenaline-pumping adventure that's not to be missed by white water rafting enthusiasts.

 

What is the best time to visit New Zealand?

The best time to visit New Zealand depends on your preferences and the activities you want to enjoy. New Zealand experiences four distinct seasons, with summer (December to February) being the most popular time for tourists. This season offers warm weather, ideal for outdoor adventures and water sports. If you prefer skiing and snow sports, winter (June to August) is the best time to hit the slopes. For beautiful autumn foliage, visit during March to May, and for spring blooms, plan your trip from September to November. It's important to note that New Zealand's weather can vary from region to region, so consider your desired activities and the regions you wish to explore when planning your visit.
