Welcome to the age of adventure. If your mission is to embrace adrenaline and create moments that you’ll never forget then you’re in the right place. Rotorua Rafting was founded in 2011 by owner, Sam Sutton. Sam had one vision, an experience that encapsulated his joy and excitement for the river he grew up on. Sam is a four-time Extreme Kayak World Champion, so the water truly runs in his blood. Rotorua Rafting combines excitement and laughter with high quality expert guides; the result is pure holiday perfection. If you’re looking for white water rafting experiences on North Island look no further than our team for an unforgettable holiday!
Voted Travellers Choice 2019
Rotorua Rafting set off on the mission to provide the best rafting tour in Rotorua, New Zealand, and the world. We have been striving to make sure that we are the highlight of your trip and the best bang for your buck since 2011.
It’s not just about giving you that river rush sensation, though we’re always stoked to see your smiling faces once you’ve experienced everything Okere Falls has to offer. At Rotorua Rafting we also want you to know that your good times are contributing to something even better. We’re all outdoor types, as you might have guessed by now, so we think it’s important to maintain a sustainable practice and contribute to the river that has provided our livelihoods. That’s why we practice sustainable tourism when we take people sightseeing around Rotorua, which is a fancy way of saying we care for the natural habitat we work in.
We’ve made some pretty bold commitments to make sure the river, and the nature, that we love so much is here for generations to come. We’re focused on becoming the very first carbon positive company in Rotorua, and we’ve made some big changes to accomplish this. Firstly, it’s about power from sustainable sources. For us, that means our base camp will be all solar by the end of 2019. Next up is travel, our hope is to convert to electric for all our Rotorua Central Shuttles. We follow the three ‘R’s religiously, reduce, reuse, recycle. Our waste has been cut in third by composting and recycling to the absolute max. Not content with cleaning up our own act, we are also committed to cleaning up with our community. That’s why, every Monday, you’ll find our staff giving up their own free time to litter pick around Okere Falls. We even support ‘Predator Free Okere Falls’ and the Department of Conservation in tree planting and predator trapping initiatives.
All of this is so you can feel good about your choice of experience provider, and we can feel good about our business. Respect the river and pick a conscientious provider with Rotorua Rafting!
