Queenstown, NZ - Show on map
Serious Fun Riverboarding

Sledging Experience - 4.5 Hours - Queenstown


  • Sledge New Zealand's best white water on a sturdy buoyant board that is easy to manoeuvre
  • Your sledge will smash through the grade 2-3 rapids for a wild fun adventure
  • After the mighty white water, enjoy some spectacular New Zealand scenery on a gentle float.

Enjoy rapids, waves and the beautiful Kawarau River on a sturdy, easy to hold, buoyant and manoeuvrable sledge. The sledge keeps you more on the surface of the water than the bodyboards so you still get all the action packed fun of the rapids, before as a relaxing float and an exciting cliff jump.

What's Included?

  • Four and a half hour river sledging experience
  • We provided all equipment needed.
  • Full briefings and training by our qualified and experienced guides.
  • Complimentary return transport from Queenstown.
  • Light snacks and refreshments

Sledge nine kilometres of New Zealand’s most exciting river water, including seven kilometres of grade 2-3 white water, on special, river-purpose and remarkably sturdy board that is buoyant and easy to manoeuvre. An action-packed white water adventure for true water lovers. You will start the trip in a secret calm eddy where will be given an introduction to the basic sledging techniques. Here you must perform the minimum skills required to undertake the adventure.

After that, you will head to the main flow, where you will need to 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 on your way down the river. You'll then finish the trip with a relaxing float in the pristine water of the Kawarau River and take time to appreciate the magnificent scenery. Sledging is ideal for those who want the riverboarding experience but are lacking in confidence.
