Snow White Combo


The Grade 2 Family Float Adventure is ideal for smaller children who love adventure.  You’ll follow the river on this leisurely 1.5 hour trip down the soft, tumbling waters of the Lower Tongariro.  The magic of rafting comes alive for first time rafters, those who prefer a gentler pace and children. You still get to paddle and there are some small rapids to navigate but nothing too wet or wild.

After your white water experience, you’ll then head to Mt Ruapehu’s Whakapapa Ski area, a scenic 45min drive from our base.  At Happy Valley, you’ll be receive a full day sledding pass which includes carpet lift access, free sightseeing return chairlift ride to Knoll Ridge cafe and a free sled.

Save up to $31



HOT Winter Deal


All rafting trips in winter include free entry to the Tokaanu Hot Pools. PLUS we have Granny’s famous hot soup available back at base.

A recent feature in the Herald On Sunday said, “To wrap up over two hours on the water we were taken for a welcome soak in the Tokaanu thermal pools and in case that hadn’t sufficiently warmed us, were fed hearty soup and bread back at the Rafting Co – serious Brownie points there.”


We are now GoPro Friendly!

You are now welcome to bring your own GoPro!  We have the helmut attachments and have put together some stock footage for you to add to your own footage.  Create stunning souvenir memories of your Tongariro River Rafting experience and share with your friends.
