Family Adventures Rafting Trips in Queenstown

Our unique trip takes around about 5.5hrs and is a combination of a sightseeing trip by bus or van (a 45 min drive into Skippers Canyon, one of the most scenic roads in NZ), and raft on the upper Shotover River.  The on-river trip is pretty gentle, we are only rafting on grade 1 & 2 rapids.  This means that any water that sloshes into the raft, does so without violence or force.  In fact, water confidence is not necessary.   We do stop along the way on the river and adults and kids who want to, can try the various rock jumps into the river, and swim in the river.  The trip definitely falls into the “soft adventure” category, it is NOT your average SCARY raft trip that you would experience on higher graded sections of the river.  We are however the only rafting operator in Queenstown who takes children under 13 years on the Shotover. Our trip takes 4.5 hours. - Adult $179 - Child $120   Trip times October noon only daily November to 30 April 07.45 and 13.45.
