Whitewater Sledging on Kaituna River


  • Exhilarating sledging adventure
  • Not for the faint hearted!
  • Spectacular scenery and waterfalls

Get your adrenalin fix on Rotoruas famous Kaituna River, with an at one with the environment, experience. Sledgers are in control of your own purpose-built sledge; manoeuvred by flippers on your feet.

What's Included?

  • Safety equipment provided
  • Full training provided
  • Complimentary pick up and return from central Rotorua

Enjoy the scenery, culture and history of this famous river with our friendly, professional guides. Sledging is the most physically difficult of all the trips we offer. Participants must be strong swimmers and physically fit. Seeing the river at eye level while lying on a board kicking with flippers is not for the faint hearted but is a great personal challenge. The trip starts at the base of the Kaituna waterfall. A reasonable level of fitness is required - participants should be capable of sprinting 100 metres and recovering reasonably quickly. Are you tough enough?

This experience is part of the Responsible Range as it was awarded a Qualmark Enviro-Gold endorsement.
