If whitewater rafting in New Zealand is going to be on your list of “things to this” summer, consider doing a trip the Kaituna river. The Kaituna, located 15 minutes north of Rotorua, is one the best and most challenging rafting trips anywhere. It’s a perfect summertime trip; a great way to get your adrenalin buzz. It runs about a mile of waterfalls and rapids, one after the other, with calm pools in between. The Powerhouse, Weir, Tutea Falls, the Abyss, just to name a few, are the kinds of rapids that keep the guides talking through the rest of the summer season and will be the highlight of your time in Rotorua.
If you want some kick-ass stories and sick photos to show off: book a trip on the Kaituna!
