Rangitata Rafts is a family owned business situated in rural Canterbury, Peel Forest, 2 Hours south of Christchurch. We pride ourselves in providing people with an authentic ‘Kiwi’ experience and making our customers feel welcome and a part of the team.
With exclusive access to Canterbury’s incredible Rangitata Gorge, we offer Grade 2 to 5 Whitewater rafting adventures for people of all ages and abilities, whether it’s the whole family on the Lower Grade 2 section or your more adventurous types taking on the Grade 5 Rapids of the Rangitata Gorge. Come and conquer some of NZ’s most remote and exhilarating rapids and soak up some stunning scenery. In the calmer sections jump in for a swim and then enjoy some good old kiwi hospitality back at our lodge while you tuck into a BBQ, enjoy a cold beer and check out your photos at the end of your trip with your fellow rafters. All this makes for the prefect recipe for a great Kiwi adventure!
