The Rangitaiki is mostly grade 3 with one grade 4 rapid. The trip consists of fun bouncy
rapids running through a beautiful river valley featuring stunning views of native and plantation forest.
The rapids require good team work from the customers but 15 – 20 minutes of training is given before the trip teaching all the required paddle and safety commands and practice is undertaken on flat water before launching into the rapids. The trip is suitable for anyone who is physically active and generally around 80% of customers are first time rafters.
There is around 15 minutes of flat water at about the mid point on the trip allowing time to relax, enjoy the scenery, chat with your guide and fellow rafters and even have a swim if you wish.
