Directions to Challenge Rafting
Exciting half-day rafting adventures on the Kawarau and Shotover Rivers in Queenstown, great for first-timers, and with a heli-rafting option into Skippers Canyon. Post-raft sauna is a big plus.
Challenge Rafting Queenstown offers two superb rafting trips. The Kawarau River option, with four rapids of grade 2-3, is an exhilarating five hour journey through this beautiful valley, which includes a view of the famous bungy bridge, which you'll paddle under (but not while someone's leaping off it, obviously...). Your trip will climax at the 400m Dog Leg Rapid, the undeniable highlight of this high-octane river rafting adventure.
If you're a little braver, opt for the 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. Just incredible. For an added thrill, why not choose the heli-rafting trip, which whisks you over to your start point in style and gives you a chance to see this stunning area from a real bird's eye view. Cameras ready...
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. Add to that the option to take advantage of the professional photo service on offer, to document your trip properly, and you've got everything you need for the ultimate wet and wild day out in Queenstown.
