Would highly recommend this! This is the second time I have been rafting in the last 12 months. The first time me and my wife took my 70 year old father in law and we recently took my 11 year old niece. Really good fun!

U will have to ask at the white water office if they have a max. age limit however, my dad is a fit 66 years old and thoroughly enjoyed it. So in my opinion a fit 70 year old is more than capable.
