With our expert tandem instructors, you'll jump out of our pink aircraft from 12,000, 15,000 or 18,500 feet and into an incredible freefall of 200km/h over one of the world's most stunning dropzones. You can see from the East to the West Coast; from White Island to Taranaki; the gorgeous Tongariro National Park and the clear waters of Lake Taupo.

Unforgettable adventures await as you navigate 60 rapids in a 13km stretch – more rapids in one stretch than anywhere in New Zealand, how cool is that?

Your pulse will be racing and your senses will be overloaded with all sorts of awesome.
When you’re in the moment – just you, your fellow rafters and the thundering water, you’ll truly understand why white water rafting is so so addictive!

We love nothing more than seeing the excitement on your face as you conquer the white water rapids of the Tongariro.

Flowing north from the snow-clad peaks of Tongariro National Park, the pristine Tongariro River is one of the world’s best places to catch trout. With three-quarters of a million rainbow and brown trout spawning in the Tongariro River every year, their chances of landing one are pretty good. There are guided white water rafting trips for all ages and levels of adventurousness – from families looking for gentle excitement and a leisurely paddle through lush gorges and native bush, to adrenaline junkies after a thrilling, rapid-shooting ride. The Tongariro River Trail is a rolling, family-friendly track for walking and mountain-biking, with stunning views of the river, Mt Pihanga and Lake Taupō.
