About Tongariro River Rafting
Tongariro River Rafting is the most experienced outdoor adventure company on the Tongariro River. We create journeys, share stories and bring people closer to nature through biking, fishing and rafting. We celebrate 25 years as a family owned and operated business in 2015. We're passionate about showing off our amazing region to visitors and are dedicated to preserving the natural environment of the Tongariro River for future generations – so much so, we founded the Blue Duck Project – with the goal of returning the rare native Blue Duck to its traditional habitat along the Tongariro River. Our adventures include Grade 3 white water rafting trips, family floats for the younger rafters or first timers, mountain biking and fishing. On your Grade 3 white water rafting trip, you will have an unforgettable 2.5 hours navigating over 60 heart-pounding rapids with an expert guide at the helm. All of our guides are highly trained professionals and our equipment is top quality. You'll even enjoy a deli style lunch after your trip (hot soup in winter). Prepare yourself for one of the most stunning white water rafting adventures in New Zealand – we know this river like the back of our paddle! “Oar-some!!”

It was super fun!!! It is safe. Highly recommended for family and first-timers. All the staff are awesome and very professional, but Mitch (our guide) is the BEST. We definitely had an amazing time. Will do it again but higher grade. Kudos to all the staff!!!

Extremely well organised with great attention to detail. This included the quality and nature of the waterproof clothing provided and really sturdy, almost bulletproof, rafts. Transportation was highly reliable always waiting ready to go and the length of river we rafted was not far from the TRR office - no lengthy bus rides. Our guide, Mitch, was brilliant and as well as being very precise in his instructions to us crew as to what to do and when whilst over the rapids, he entertained our children too. Our kids are twin 11 year olds and a 14 year old - they loved the trip. Highly recommended.
