This is ‘the one the locals love’ and it’s recognised worldwide for its rafting value.
The most technical of the trips we offer, the Wairoa courses through a stunning rock and tree lined gorge. The trip combines turbulent rapids with exciting drops to produce top white water action. This hydro-controlled river is only released 26 days per year.
In order to release the water they have to shut down a hydro-electric power station.
The trip runs selected Sundays from September to May. Release dates are available on our website from Mid July.
