Take in the majestic views of Rotorua and its surroundings by Helicopter as you make your way to our exclusive entrance to the Okere River on the Te Akau block. This land of Hinerangi & Hinekiri (tribal people of the land), is where 10 kilometers of spectacular whitewater awaits. Untouched beautifully scenic New Zealand, passing through historic Maori lands, infused with cultural significance. Negotiate awesome drops & rapids, accompanied by New Zealand’s best river guides. Take the river on at eye level as you are propelled through the water with flippers on your feet.
