Grade III All Day White Water Rafting
Price: $159 per person (minimum age 13 years)
Grab your chance to raft some of the finest sections of wild and scenic rapids in New Zealand on this All Day Grade 3 White Water! Experience an exciting rafting adventure with some spectacular scenery as you make your way down some 20kms of truly remote bush and mountain country on the Mohaka River.
Recommended for families and groups looking for a bit more fun and excitement.
This trip begins at 9am at Mountain Valley where you get everything you need before boarding the shuttle for your all day white water adventure! Setting off from the raft base, the half hour drive to a remarkable feature known as the organs, a rock formation shaped like organ pipes, sees the start point for the trip. The first stages of the river are relatively gentle, and offer a great opportunity to get to know your guide, the boat, and to hone key skills before getting into the real stuff! Explore an abandoned mine shaft beside the river, Conquer renowned rapids such as Dog Leg, Shark's Fin and the Te Hoe drop, leap off rock ledges into deep pools in vertical sided gorges if you want to, or swim by choice and soak up the peace of the bush. The scenery is outstanding, and some of the views of the mountains, forests & wildlife are enough to take your breath away.
After approximately four hours on the river, a Mountain Valley Team member will meet you at Te Kooti's lookout, a towering peak named after the legendary Maori warrior who took his stand here during the colonial wars of early settler New Zealand. The hour drive back to Mountain Valley offers a chance to relax, swap stories, or grab forty winks before arriving back at base between 4pm-5pm.
