Do you like to be at one with nature? Then come and challenge yourself to sledge on one of New Zealand’s pristine river systems. This is a fantastic opportunity to combine your love of the great outdoors with extreme adrenalin. Are you ready for the sledging challenge?
Your White Water Sledging adventure starts when we collect you from your accommodation in Rotorua and transport you to our office.
You are required to change into the protective clothing we provide for you. Once we have everyone dressed in their gear we take you to the river, where we go though some basic land based training. Once you’ve mastered the techniques on land, we then head for the water for some further schooling.
The fun begins after you had comprehensive instruction from our qualified guides. Your guides are the best in their field and they are there to guarantee you the experience of a lifetime!
Get ready to ‘Sledge –It’, because it is time for your adventure to begin. Take the river on at eye level as you are propelled through the water with flippers on your feet. Not only is this an adrenaline ride - we combine this fun experience with history and knowledge of the local area.
