Kawarau River Jet to Raft - a river adventure for all. Here is

your chance to pair two of Queenstown's most iconic experiences - pack in those famous 360 spins and dramatic canyon walls as you discover the Kawarau River and its pristine wilderness on the Go Orange Jet, racing down the river to your waiting raft. Rafting the grade 2-3 rapids may be perfect for first timers but as river levels change daily you should expect a gripping ride no matter what. There is plenty of rapid action, even the chance to swim through one and a brand new cliff jumping section. This river experience is the perfect adventure as you paddle through the historic Kawarau gorge, famous for its gold mining, wineries, its stint in The Lord of the Rings franchise and beautiful scenery. If you would rather wait to book this trip when in New Zealand to see what the weather is like – why not consider an open dated voucher. All you need to do is reconfirm your trip 24 hours in advance.
