Challenge Rafting Queenstown offers thrilling rafting trips on the Shotover and Kawarau Rivers

Exciting half-day rafting adventures on the Kawarau and Shotover Rivers in Queenstown, great for first-timers.  Post-raft sauna is a big plus.

Challenge Rafting Queenstown offers two superb rafting trips:

Kawarau River features four rapids of grade 2-3, is an exhilarating five hour journey through this beautiful valley, and includes a view of the famous bungy bridge, which you'll paddle under.  Your trip will climax at the 400m Dog Leg Rapid, the undeniable highlight of this high-octane river rafting adventure.

Shotover River experience, with rugged landscape that matches the rough edges of the six rapids you'll be tackling here, all grades 3-5, as well as the awesome 170m-long Oxbridge Tunnel, which shoots you out into Cascade Rapid as a grand finale.   

Both trips include transfers to and from your start/finish points, all equipment and specialist clothing, safety briefings, professional and friendly guides and, most welcome, a gorgeous hot sauna (and shower) back at base.
