- Get up close and personal with best whitewater in NZ
- One of the country’s best extreme adventures
- Scenic river trip packed with action
Love extreme sports? Want to see more of New Zealand’s spectacular natural scenery? This awesome Queenstown gift experience does not disappoint. You’ll be splashing around in the mighty Kawarau River, tackling whitewater rapids between Grades 2 and 4, spinning in whirlpools and catching a ride on underwater currents. And you’re not in a boat by the way - all this is on top of a bodyboard! River boarding is an action-packed, exhilarating way to see the stunning landscapes that have made this country so famous.
It’s not full-on the whole way - there are brief moments where you can catch your breath. Stop and see the iconic A J Hackett bungee; try some rock-jumping in return for beer vouchers, and pause to admire some of the scenery that was used in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Your instructors will show you how to use your board safely, as well as how to perform some easy tricks like barrel rolls, surfing waves, and squirting, which is flying underwater if you didn’t know! Choose from boarding either the Chinese Dogleg or Roaring Meg sections, and get ready for the time of your life.
