Sledging - Riverboarding

For Kids Rafting River Boarding Water Activities Half-Day Tours Extreme Sports & Adrenaline
Ride grade 2-3 Roaring Meg rapids on custom made river sledges, which are buoyant, manoeuvrable, easy to hold on to and channelled to fit the body comfortably.  

This is an action-packed adventure.  After an introduction to the basic sledging techniques, you'll begin in a secret calm eddy.  Here you must perform the minimum skills required to experience this trip.

As you navigate to the main flow, hold on tight and feel the power of the river as adrenaline kicks in.  Ride fast-flowing rapids, blast through waves, spin on giant whirlpools and try wicked rock jumps. 

Finish the trip with a relaxing float in the pristine water of the Kawarau River and enjoy the magnificent scenery.

Sledging is ideal for those who want the riverboarding experience but are lacking in confidence.
